Functions and advantages

Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the Overhead exoskeleton from Hilti for construction and handicrafts need to know.


This model is passive and does not require energy input. The arms are diverted to the hip with the help of a mechanical pulley system to support the weight of the arms. This reduces peak muscle stress and relieves shoulder strain by up to 47 percent, according to independent studies and research by Ottobock. The product must not be used in explosive environments and should not be used without user-specific product adjustment.

The product must not be used to increase performance or to lift people.
