Exoskeleton designed to reduce joint stress for factory workers

January 17, 2018

The Airframe exoskeleton was created by Levitate Technologies, Inc. to support the upper extremity of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions or stationary arm elevation. The exoskeleton transfers the weight of the arms from the shoulders, neck and upper back to the core through pads that rest on the outside of the hips, thus relieving muscle and joint strain. By transferring upper extremity load, the device helps sustain high quality performance, protects health and improves overall work conditions.
