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.

How long does it take to put on and take off the Paexo Neck?2019-11-18T11:27:02+01:00

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

Can several people share a Paexo Neck?2019-11-07T18:10:31+01:00

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.

For what user heights is the Paexo Neck suited?2019-11-07T18:10:24+01:00

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

Is the Paexo Neck a performance-boosting exoskeleton?2019-11-07T18:09:59+01:00

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.

Why is using the Paexo Neck important?2019-11-07T18:09:37+01:00

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.
