LegX is an exoskeleton that supports the user's knees and allows them to squat repeatedly or for extended periods of time with ease. Active relief for knee pain and fatigue.
Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the Exoskeleton LegX from SuitX for sitting and squatting in industry need to know.
The size of the exoskeleton and the level of support it provides can be customized for the user depending on their individual needs. The legX offers two different functions: Smart Mode and Locking Mode, which can be used independently or in combination. In Smart Mode, the system moves out of the way when walking or climbing stairs. When squatting, it automatically engages and transfers some of the user's weight beyond the knee to the floor. In this mode, the user is supported both going down and going up. In locking mode, the exoskeleton can be used like a chair that can be adjusted to different heights.
Significant reduction in rectus femoris activity with exoskeleton was observed (median reduction: 22%-56% and peak reduction: 12%-48% for slab task and median reduction: 57% and peak reduction: 34% for floor task).
LegX significantly reduces rectus femoris activity during static (floor) and dynamic (plate) squat work and can reduce the pain and discomfort associated with squatting and potentially reduce the risk of developing knee pain. Dynamic work benefits from both locking and spring support, with the greatest benefit occurring with a combination of both.
