Frédéric HAMAIN accompanied by Nicolas IRIART and Elie PEETERS, all three students at ESIGELEC first developed the concept as a student project during the Innovation Week, for which he then won first prize. After two years of R&D, the three partners created their SIATECH startup in 2016 by observing that in the field, the currently used industrial remote controls are cumbersome, often broken and/or lost and can cause dangerous situations (particularly fatal accidents). In order to correct these factors to improve the working conditions of users, they developed the ComHAND, an innovative hands-free remote control!
Reviews from Siatech
There are many situations where the use of remote-controlled machines is restrictive. The remote control takes too much space, so the operator cannot perform his task freely. We offer a range of solutions to free operators’ hands and help them perform their tasks in the best possible conditions.

We are looking for original solutions to improve the working conditions of a user in a factory. Thanks to our portable products we reduce unnecessary and parasitic actions to a minimum such as: the loss, or the damage of your remote control. We are constantly looking for improvements in ergonomics, not only of the product but also of its use. When a user becomes so confident to the point of forgetting that he is wearing our product; it becomes an extension of his body and will. And this is our goal.
