Modular, Full-Body Exoskeleton MAX

21.11.2016 | SuitX | www.suitx.com

The MAX system is designed to provide a flexible exoskeleton solution that can be adapted for a variety of different workplace tasks.

The result is a versatile system that can allow workers to complete shoulder, lower back, and leg intensive tasks with reduced injury risk while remaining comfortable enough to wear all day. MAX is composed of three exoskeleton modules: backX, shoulderX, and legX. Each module can be worn independently and in any combination depending on need. All modules intelligently engage when you need them, and don’t impede you otherwise.

Modular exoskeleton

Extensive laboratory evaluations on MAX at the University of California indicate the MAX system reduces muscle force required to complete tasks by as much as 60 percent. The MAX system combines legX, backX , and sholderX into a full body exoskeleton suit. Though legX, backX, and shoulderX can function independently to reduce forces at the knee, back, and shoulder respectively, combining all three into the MAX system gives operators unprecedented flexibility in reducing forces at all three joints.
