The X-Arm is meant to work with instruments that weigh between 2 kg to 40 kg (4.4 lb to 88 lb). These tools can include but are not limited to grinders, punches, and drills. While the exoskeleton is a passive device with no motors or powered actuators it can carry a rechargeable battery.
The weight of the instruments is meant to flow through the exoskeleton’s spring arm, and through the frame directly into the ground. The majority of the weight of the instrument should bypass the user while working in place. This could remove a significant amount of weight from the back and shoulders with the intent of reduced fatigue, fewer workmanship errors, and reducing musculoskeletal injuries.
The X-Arm industrial exoskeleton itself can weigh up to 17 kg (37.5 lb). It is made primarily of alloy aluminum and fabrics.
