The principle of a hammock

“It works on the principle of a hammock. The user can simply lay his head back and is held in place.”

Frequently asked questions about the Paexo Neck

We would be happy to provide you with a quote. Please contact us by e-mail at industrials@ottobock.com.

The period of use for the Paexo Neck is not limited. Since the Paexo Neck is easy to put on and take off, it can easily be removed when not in use, for example when rotating workstations or during breaks.

After a short familiarisation phase, it can be put on and taken off in just a few seconds.

We recommend that the exoskeleton is allocated on an individual basis. This is the only way to guarantee that the Paexo Neck is as effective as possible. Sharing it with another user is also not recommended for hygiene reasons. However, the Paexo Neck can be easily retrofitted and sanitised in order to allocate it to a new long-term user.

The Paexo Neck can be adapted to user heights from about 160 to 190 cm.

No, the Paexo Neck provides relief and support for people. It improves ergonomics and can increase employee satisfaction, but it is not a performance-boosting exoskeleton.

About one quarter (23.2%) of days missed because of inability to work in Germany are due to musculoskeletal disorders (data from 2013). And this figure increases with age: among people older than 55, it already accounts for more than 35%. In other words, the economic cost of musculoskeletal disorders is considerable (loss of gross value added: approx. EUR 20 billion, 2013 data) (see DGUV).

There is a proven, direct relationship between overhead work and musculoskeletal disorders. Physical relief provided by exoskeletons can contribute to reducing work-related health hazards, time away from work and accidents. Exoskeletons can therefore make a major contribution to preventive healthcare for employees.

Manual work above shoulder and head height puts a great deal of strain on the joints and muscles of the shoulders, arms and back. The neck muscles can also get very tense due to tilting the head back. Such activities can lead to work-related disorders of the musculoskeletal system over the long term.
