Exoskeletons: Next Generation PPE
Some of the most common field injuries derive from back, shoulders, and leg strains and sprains. These are often triggered by improper lifting form, overuse, or overexertion in environments where workers perform rote movements with heavy or high-volume objects. Protect labor force, minimize injuries, and reduce workman’s compensation claims by integrating exoskeletons, also known as neutral wearables, into PPE rotation.
Designed to perform specific functions such as lifting, pushing, or carrying, exoskeletons work to stabilize the body and multiply human strength. These devices are fully adjustable, customizable, and adaptable to move with natural body mechanics. They function to assist wearers without restricting movement or replacing human skill. Depending on the required application, these devices can be either passive (operated without a battery), powered (battery operated), or a mix of both.
