People who do heavy-duty overhead work get often diagnosed with lasting bodily damage. Skel-Ex exoskeleton systems support people working in limited spaces and awkward postures, like automotive assembly. The suit is extremely light, easy to use, wear, adjust and move in. Skel-ex is the most advanced - and first 360 degrees freedom - exoskeleton under 3 kg. It is based on a smartly designed carbon fiber spring without any electronics or actuators to keep it light. The suit is designed to intuitively put on and adjust according to your own body size. It only touches the body where needed and provides upwards force for lifting.
