The Otto Back exoskeleton or Ottobock Paexo Back works according to a biomechanical principle: This exoskeleton absorbs force when bending and releases it again when lifting, making the load easier to bear. With the Paexo Back exoskeleton, the load is taken off at the shoulder and redirected to the thighs. Even the Augsburger Puppenkiste uses the Paexo Shoulder for their performances.

The Paexo Shoulder is a passive exoskeleton from Ottobock that supports people who perform physically demanding activities with raised arms on a daily basis. It relieves pressure on the shoulder joints and upper arms using cable pull technology, for example during overhead work in assembly, crafts or construction.
The weight of the raised arms is transferred to the hips via the arm shell using a mechanical steep traction technique. The system is worn like a backpack.
When working above shoulder and head height, joints and muscles in the shoulders, arms and back are subjected to extremely hard strain. In addition, the neck muscles can become tense as the person leans back. Furthermore, working overhead affects blood flow to the arms due to hydrostatic pressure in the blood vessels. Employers' duty of care therefore includes the consideration of introducing exoskeletons.
No, because all movements must be carried out by yourself. It only redistributes the load in your interest. So the load is redistributed to the hip.
With the Paexo Shoulder, you can sit down and give things up from the floor. It can be worn all day.
The Paexo Shoulder can be individually adjusted to body heights between 160 cm and 190 cm. We therefore recommend the use of an exoskeleton with an employee so that the settings are permanently set to be ideal for the user.
Would not recommend, because it should be properly adjusted per person. In addition, this would reduce efficiency in the industry, because you have to readjust the system before putting it on. Furthermore, for hygienic reasons, it should not be passed on to another user.
It takes less than 15 seconds to put down, and less than 30 seconds to put on.
Yes you can. Otherwise, simply due to the fast on and off time briefly at the break on or off.
Under 2 kg.
The Paexo Shoulder should not be exposed to excessive sunlight or to temperatures above or below -10 to 45 °C. Contact with heat, embers and fire should also be avoided.
The technique can be wiped with a damp cloth as described in the operating instructions. The textiles can be easily removed and washed. However, the washing process should be implemented during operation.
