Functions and advantages

Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the Military exoskeleton Uprise from Mawashi need to know.


Reducing the burden on soldiers is one of the top five (5) priorities of armed forces around the world.

As wars increasingly take place in urban environments, soldiers will need to increase the frequency and duration of their marches in the near future, as target regions are difficult or impossible to reach by vehicle.

A soldier equipped with the UPRISE passive exoskeleton will be able to carry his equipment more easily (up to 120 pounds, depending on the mission) and his freedom of movement will not be affected by the weight, as is the case without the exoskeleton. This will guarantee him dominance and efficiency on the battlefield while he is equipped with all the tools and functions required for his mission.

The UPRISE Tactical Exoskeleton meets this urgent need to increase the protection of soldiers from injuries that severely limit their performance in the field: With a complex exoskeleton structure made of high-strength titanium, the UPRISE is perfectly adapted to the human body. With its innovative and ultra-lightweight design, this exoskeleton achieves an unparalleled level of freedom of movement.

With minimal resistance to movement, the UPRISE Tactical Exoskeleton allows for all the movements required by dismounted soldiers and Special Forces operators during tactical maneuvers and other tasks. Its rugged and unique frame transfers the load carried by the fighter's shoulders to the ground.

Mawashi's patented UPRISE exoskeleton technology consists of:

Flexible spine modeled on the human anatomy

Sliding belt for the degree of freedom of hip rotation

Fully articulated and ergonomic legs

The main features of the passive load-bearing exoskeleton UPRISE are as follows
  • Advanced ergonomics that provide an unparalleled level of freedom of movement
  • 50-80%ige load transfer capability to the floor under static and dynamic conditions.
  • Up to 25 % lower energy cost for locomotion (metabolic expenditure).
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): 3D scans have shown that knee cartilage compression decreases with the passive load-bearing UPRISE exoskeleton
  • Ultra-lightweight, non-powered and non-motorized system that provides continuous support with no limit to the duration of use
  • Titanium exoskeleton structure with high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Reduces musculoskeletal stress when soldiers carry heavy loads on their bodies
  • Reduces discomfort when carrying heavy loads on the body
  • Provides a high level of kinematic compatibility with the user
  • No significant change of physiological parameters during walking
  • Does not significantly alter the Soldier's strategies in performing primary and secondary operational tasks
