Robotics startup suitX is turning human laborers into bionic workers with a new modular, full-body exoskeleton that will help reduce the number of on-the-job injuries.
The future world could look very different if all of these technologies become a reality.
A company called suitX has created a mobility exoskeleton that’s designed for disabled users.
Artificial Intelligence hasn’t taken over the labor market, yet. It’s in unstructured workspaces where human laborers will continue to thrive, explained Dr. Homayoon Karerooni, founder and CEO of suiX.

Modular Exoskeleton Aims to Reduce Workplace Injuries
SuitX, a robotics company based out of Berkeley’s Human Engineering Lab, has launched a new exoskeleton, the Max, that aims to augment human capabilities while at the same time protecting users from common workplace injuries.
Versatile, low-cost bionics can reduce muscle strain and prevent injuries across multiple industries.
EMERYVILLE, Calif. (KGO) --
Powered exoskeletons promise to help people who've lost their mobility walk again.
Based on UC Berkeley engineering research, MAX (Modular Agile Exoskeleton) combines back, shoulder and leg components to form the only passive industrial exoskeleton currently available
Ergonomic design for office workers has been around for decades. These exoskeletal devices aim to bring the idea to industrial workers.
