Dynamic Shoulder Support
V3 shoulderX is the world's most advanced exoskeleton designed to protect a user's shoulder. shoulderX enables one to perform chest to ceiling level tasks for longer durations or with less effort. The device supports the user's shoulder joint by transferring the load of the user's raised arm and tool, past the shoulder complex, directly to the wearer's hips.
This third-generation exoskeleton incorporates novel features based on the feedback obtained from numerous field evaluations across the globe, and boasts a 40 percent reduction in weight compared to the version 2 without losing any of its industry-leading characteristics.
"The third-generation shoulderX exoskeleton proves suitX's ability in rapid development of innovative exoskeleton technologies and goes hand in hand with our wish to focus on our employees' well being, being at the forefront of the technological development as well as increasing the productivity of our factories globally."
Mr. C. Nielsen, Head of Tooling at Siemens Gamesa
Academic Papers on shoulderX
Support capacity can be quickly changed to accommodate different users, tools, tasks, and fatigue level.
Support force gradually increases as the user lifts his arms and becomes near zero when the arms are lowered, allowing the user to rest arms naturally or reach for tools on their tool belt.
One Size Fits Most
The standard frame fits a wide range of heights, waist sizes, shoulder widths, chest depths, and arm lengths (5%-95% of human dimensions) without additional parts
Anthropomorphic design follows user's body to fit in tight spaces and changing environments
shoulderX weighs 7 lbs (3.17 kg)
No Batteries Required
Allows to wearer to use the device for extended periods without worrying about charging and maintaining batteries.
Minimal inhibition of arm and torso range of motion. Designed for all-day wear
Three Compatible Modules
shoulderX is compatible with legX and backX. Modules can be combined to make 7 different exoskeletons to provide a customized solution for every task.
Can be used with tool belts, allowing workers normal equipment to retain functionality
Quick Donning and Doffing
Less than 1 minute to put on or take off
Designed for use in harsh environments such as construction sites, manufacturing plants, and shipbuilding facilities.
Available Add Ons
Fire Retardant (FR), Cooling Fans, Tool Pouches
What makes shoulderX the right solution for you?
shoulderX does not require additional hardware to adjust the size or the strength of the device. This eliminates the risk of losing components and reduces the total amount of inventory that companies must manage.
Optimized for Your Task
shoulderX strength characteristics can be adjusted to optimize performance for any task. shoulderX's support level and the location of the peak support are controllable. This together with the ability to turn each arm on and off individually, allows each user to minimize shoulder muscle fatigue.
Breathable Human Interface
The harnessing system is breathable and automatically conforms to each user's unique body shape, distributing the support forces across a large surface area on the hips and lower back. This prevents the exoskeleton from slipping out of place on the wearer, and reduces the need to perform micro-adjustments during use. The optional fans provide additional cooling during warm weather or in hot environments.
