Earlier this year, California-based suitX announced what it claimed was the world's most affordable mobility exoskeleton, the Phoenix. Designed for disabled users, it utilizes motors to move their legs for them.
SuitX, the company behind a medical exoskeleton called Phoenix, has just announced a new modular option called MAX, or the Modular Agile Exoskeleton.
Ostensibly, the suitX MAX looks like something out of a futuristic science-fiction film -- a powerful mechanic suit that increases one's strength and agility. In reality, the suitX MAX isn't far off from that imagining, although the tool's purpose is somewhat more pragmatic in scope.
Robotics startup suitX is turning human laborers into bionic workers with a new modular, full-body exoskeleton that will help reduce the number of on-the-job injuries.
The future world could look very different if all of these technologies become a reality.
A company called suitX has created a mobility exoskeleton that’s designed for disabled users.
Versatile, low-cost bionics can reduce muscle strain and prevent injuries across multiple industries.
EMERYVILLE, Calif. (KGO) --
Powered exoskeletons promise to help people who've lost their mobility walk again.
Based on UC Berkeley engineering research, MAX (Modular Agile Exoskeleton) combines back, shoulder and leg components to form the only passive industrial exoskeleton currently available
Ergonomic design for office workers has been around for decades. These exoskeletal devices aim to bring the idea to industrial workers.
