Exoskeleton Reduces Overhead Fatigue

March 16, 2020

Relieving strain on shoulder joints and upper arms, the Paexo Shoulder is a passive exoskeleton that supports people who carry out physically demanding tasks with their arms raised on a daily basis.


At just 3.9 lb., the exoskeleton is the lightest of its kind and can be worn comfortably for more than eight hours while providing noticeable relief for the shoulders and arms during overhead work.


Paexo Shoulder is worn close to the body, similar to a backpack. It transfers weight from the arms to the hips with the help of its supporting structures. Thanks to its biomechanical design, the exoskeleton offers users full freedom of movement at work: You can walk, sit, and pick up objects comfortably. After a familiarization phase, it takes under 20 seconds to put on and take off the Paexo Shoulder.


Thanks to quick and easy handling, the exoskeleton can be taken off between uses, for example when on breaks or when rotating workstations.
