Ikuyo Matsuo
Mechanical engineer

Ryukoku University, Faculty of Science and Technology, B.S. Ikuyo Matsuo is on staff at Activelink, as one of the few female mechanical engineers in the industry. She is at the forefront of developing “Power Loader,” a powered suit. Her passion centers on better understanding the intimate relationship between humans and machines. Through her research, she realized that it was her lack of physical power that allowed her to better pick up on inefficiencies of robotic movement. She believes that there is a
need for more female engineers in order to develop technology that can be used by anyone and everyone.
