Introducing the new partnership with HeroWear to bring you a suit worth the weight
Introducing the HeroWear Apex Exo – Built to sustain the strength of every worker
The Apex employs passive-elastic bands that act in synergy with the major muscle groups responsible for bending and lifting.
The exosuit’s design uses the advantage of an extended moment arm to decrease total forces in the system, meaning the same work can be done with less total force applied.
REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURIES FOR WORKERS
In total, the HeroWear Apex exosuit reduces about 15%–40% of peak muscle forces applied. Studies have proven that just a 10% reduction in peak forces can result in a 50–80% reduction in microdamage to tissue—and it is the accumulation of microdamage that often leads to overuse injuries like muscle strains and stress fractures.
Women Lift Everyday
Women make up half the industrial workforce. So, from the beginning, we designed the Apex as an exo for all: the first exosuit with a fit for women. The Apex comes in over 50 different fit combinations. All sizes — short, tall, large and small. For women, unisex exosuits and exoskeletons often don’t meet their human standard: comfort. To be a true exo for all, an exosuit must be customizable, wearable, and comfortable. The Apex meets those criteria with a thoughtful, modular design factoring the key variables necessary for a custom fit. For women and for men.
The science behind it.
Born from rigorous science and fitted to the human frame, the Apex is a back-assist exosuit researched, developed, and tested in the lab at one of the world’s leading research institutions. Its lightweight design is functional and effective, assisting the worker’s back and sustaining their strength to reduce their risk. All without motors or batteries.
It’s lightweight, weighing just 3.4 lbs
It’s strong and can take over 50lbs. of strain off the back
It’s passive, without motors and batteries
It’s agile, allowing greater variety of motion than any other device
It’s modular, able to adjust to the diverse body types of men and women
It’s affordable, to be accessible to business of all sizes
