About Ekso

The Ekso Bionics is a wearable bionic suit that enables individuals with lower extremities injuries to walk and stand up. Walking is achieved by the user's shift in weight to activate the sensors in the device which then initiate steps. Battery-powered motors drive the leg, enabling it to assist the deficient muscles. The exoskeleton system is intended for medical usage as in rehabilitation and clinical assistance. It also includes step generator software to help patients achieve their optimum walking capabilities. The suit is designed to be convenient and adjustable thanks to comfortable straps and push buttons.

Workplace Potential Overview

This exoskeleton has the potential to enhance health by allowing the workers to execute heavy-duty tasks more easily, or allowing people with spinal injury to slowly rehabilitate by performing regular tasks with assistance of the suit. It can also help productivity as it betters workers' physical shape and allow them to perform physically demanding tasks more efficiently. Finally, Ekso Bionics can be used for training purposes when used as a physical rehab tool.
