The German Bionic Cray X exoskeleton supports the wearer’s lower back when lifting heavy loads, by actively simulating and strengthening movements. The Cray X exoskeleton is a human-machine system that combines human intelligence with machine power, by supporting and strengthening the wearer’s movements, thereby reducing the risk of workplace accidents and load-bearing injuries. German Bionic CRAY X has been specially designed for people manually handling goods and tools, to reduce compression pressure in the lower back area. Exoskeletons come into play when human work cannot realistically be replaced by full automation or robotics systems. Included in this are working processes in industrial production, such as in the automotive industry, as well as in physically demanding work in the construction and logistics sectors. The German Bionic CRAY X employs advanced micromechanical components and an ultralight ergonomic carrying system.
