MadFlex – No Ordinary Movement

The MadFlex is a ultra-light composite material, flexible on the one face and crushproof and resistant on the other. Thanks to its biocompatibility, its ability to control vibrations and absorb shocks and the possibility to thermoform it in any desired shape, the MadFlex can be used to redefine the mechanical limits of many products. Now, CoRe presents its first MadFlex prototype: A folding wheelchair, superior in performances and lightness, which combines the comfort and the stability of rigid models with the ease of transport of the alternatives with a fabric seat.

Composite Research SRL (Torino)

Composite Research is a startup company founded in 2016 by a group of young Italian professionals, coming both from the technical (chemical and engineering) and the commercial (financial and communication) sectors , who met each other two years earlier, while sharing a working experience in an Italian R&D company. Driven by their curiosity on the world of materials and structural solutions, they studied and developed the MadFlex (WO2016120785 A1). Thanks to the highly innovative nature of this new material, the team has been able to create fruitful collaborations with several leading companies from different sectors (e.g. design, building, automotive, aerospace). Moreover, the European Institute of Innovation & Technology, recognizing the innovation and environmental benefits of the MadFlex, granted € 60000 for the project. In order to widening its scope, CoRe is actually looking for entering new markets, by attracting potential customers from all over the world.
