Extremely lightweight carbon exoskeleton specially developed for emergency forces and industry.
Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the Thorax SSM spinal support from ax-lightness for industry, emergency forces and trade need to know.
The Thorax SSM made of carbon is intended both for industry as a back relief, as well as specially developed for emergency forces such as firefighters, police officers and paramedics. The managing director of ax-lightness composites GmbH, which produces this solution in its own factories in Duderstadt (Germany), developed the product based on his own experience as a firefighter. The Thorax is available in five sizes, the smallest solution XS weighs only 690 grams. It is used to stabilize the torso area. The price starts at 2,200 EUR and leasing is also possible.
Possible areas of application are:
The material has a glass-fiber-reinforcing effect on the back due to the amaride and is therefore bulletproof. It is water and dust repellent. It reminds the body of the ideal posture. The thorax is not suitable for lying down. The pads can be removed and it can be customized at several points. The Thorax is designed unisex, so women and men can both use it.
When lifting loads or holding production goods, the Thorax-SSM supports the spine by optimizing its load-bearing capacity. At the same time, its natural memory helps to bring the body into an upright position and relieves the spine. With freedom of movement throughout, the Thorax-SSM can be worn throughout the activity.
The big advantage is that you can wear the thorax under your clothes, so it is no longer noticeable.
The special feature of this solution is the "carbon" material, which not only makes the exoskeleton extremely light, but also, if desired, bulletproof. This means that emergency forces can benefit from it twice over.
Thorax has been certified according to DIN EN ISO 26800 by the Institut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie e.V. (IGR). DIN EN ISO 26800 represents the general approach to ergonomics and defines essential ergonomic principles and concepts. Ergonomics deals with human, technological, economic and organizational factors that influence the behavior, activities and well-being of people at work.
