New Exoskeleton Relieves the Back

Paexo Back was developed in collaboration with logistics experts and employees in warehousing and parcel distribution centres. The exoskeleton works according to a biomechanical principle: the load is taken off at the shoulder, like a backpack, and transferred to the thighs with the help of the exoskeleton’s support structure. The energy store absorbs force when bending and releases it again when lifting.

Relief of up to 25 kilograms for the lower back

The heart of the system is the purely mechanical control at hip level – a technological world first. It can differentiate between bending and walking and switches off automatically when walking to provide full freedom of movement. The degree of support can be continuously adjusted to the load of different work steps.
