People who perform manual work above shoulder, often experience a great deal of strain in the neck region or even suffer from remaining work-related disorders. The exoskeleton Paexo Neck provides relief and support for people during all kinds of overhead work, like installing ceilings and automotive assembly. This innovative exoskeleton is the first neck support that can be individually adapted to every user through various adjustment options and can be put on and taken off easily within a few seconds. The featherweight design makes the Paexo Neck extremely comfortable and provides a very high degree of freedom of movement for the user.
