The Apex Exosuit is made for workers in the logistics industry to fight fatigue in the workplace. Designed without motors or batteries, the science-backed Apex weighs just 3.4 pounds and can reduce over 50 pounds of strain on the back. The mechanism for the load absorption is powered by a combination of mechanical hardware and elastic latex bands that act like artificial muscles. The backpack-like design keeps workers cool and comfortable, is intuitive to put on and take off, and has a low profile that allows for a wide range of motion. The modular design accommodates 56 size adjustments, addressing a wide range of body shapes and sizes, including gender-specific fit options.
