ExoAtlant

The ExoAtlant is a modular solution with the goal of reducing the load on the spine when lifting and carrying loads, avoid radiculopathy, and reduce the percentage of disability.

Description

Unlike other passive back support exoskeletons, the ExoAtlant is meant to be a highly modular device that can be configured into a tool holding exo, a hip-arm support exo, or a hip-elbow wearable. The ExoAtlant is also designed to integrate with wearable sensors that record the user’s body position or environmental conditions.

The ExoAtlant is an occupation lift-and-carry passive exoskeleton focused on “developing a light exoskeleton, which allows to reduce the load on the spine employee during lifting and carrying the load, to avoid radiculopathy and to reduce the occupational injuries.”

While wearable sensors are proving to be a good tool to remind employees to maintain a safer body posture the ExoAtlant aims to take things one step further. The design aims to lighten the load on the back muscles while physically reinforcing a good body posture (while still not interfering with walking). The design emphasis is placed on reducing the torque at the L5, S1 vertebral joint spine segments.

The primary application is for workers who are regularly handling complex, large or irregular shaped loads.
