The V22’s load-shifting technology is designed to help to reduce certain factors that have been associated with lumbar back pain. It reduces strain on the lower back, which can help reduce lower back injuries.
In the workplace, employees may use improper postures when lifting heavy objects, which leads to risky lifting techniques. The StrongArm ErgoSkeleton Lift Assist Device V22 encourages workers to lift in a manner in accordance with NIOSH and OSHA lifting guidelines, which promote pivoting, knee bending and better body mechanics.
The device also helps distribute weight throughout the body to reduce strain. When lifting a heavy box, a worker will find that the weight is distributed through the cords down to the stronger muscles of the legs, which results in less arm fatigue and less stress on the upper body.
The anthropomorphically-based BLEEX has seven degrees of freedom per leg, four of which are powered by linear hydraulic actuators. The exoskeleton is worn by its operator and provides its wearer the...
