For more than a decade, SUITX has been committed to the mission of making everyday tasks in physically demanding workplaces easier through the development of 'wearables'.
Born out of the Human Engineering and Robotics Labratory at University of California Berkeley, SUITX's founders are comprised of Minerva Pillai, Ph.D., Wayne Tung, Ph.D., Michael McKinley, Ph.D., Logan Van Engelhoven, Ph.D., and Berkeley Professor Dr. Homayoon Kazerooni.
Ottobock, a world-wide leader based in Germany with over 100 years of experience in the development and manufacturing of biomechanical and orthopedic products, has been researching innovative solutions to make workplaces more ergonomic, minimize physical strain and create healthier working conditions.
In 2021, the two companies joined forces to develop exoskeletons specifically for the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace.
In partnership with Ottobock, SUITX develops highly efficient yet extremely lightweight exoskeletons, utilizing the distribution and marketing experience that Ottobock has in over 35 countries.
Research and development are the cornerstones of SUITX. Creative engineers and designers, both in California and Europe, work closely together to develop innovative and truly groundbreaking exoskeletons. And the field of tasks is large, because not all application areas have been covered yet, where work-related strains could be alleviated and ergonomic postures corrected.
