Exoskeleton / shoulder orthosis


Porters or workers always involve a hard physical labor job. There’s a kind of work about carry the gas barrel for buyer in Asia. It causes occupational injury like muscle pain and soreness for them. Hence, we hope Exoskeleton can solve this problem despite it would have no commercial value.
Exoskeleton is a wearable orthosis, and the material with Gore-Tex is durably waterproof. The inside of shoulder fills with air cushion that can able to absorb gas pressure under the weight. It’s designed to resist force, which can be attributed to left pain. The hook-and-loop fasteners are used to stick this device, because it allows users to wear easier
