Functions and advantages

Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the S700 Overhead Exoskeleton from ExoIQ need to know.

The S700 exoskeleton is quick and easy to put on and take off in seconds and can be customized for different users thanks to tool-free sizing. It is fastened like a backpack with hip and chest straps. The handles are easily accessible and simple to attach thanks to the magnetic grips. After the device is equipped, users only need to remember three numbers: back length marker, shoulder width marker and arm length marker. Worker strain is reduced by the support force of the active exoskeleton. Redirection and increased power increase accuracy and reduce errors due to physical fatigue. Muscles in the shoulders, arms and neck are relieved. The S700 features an interchangeable textile system that allows the company to provide each worker with their own set of textiles to ensure hygienic use. The quick-change system makes switching between multiple employees a breeze. The textile is washable.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

The S700 was presented to the public for the first time at Automatica 2022. Production will start in the 1st quarter of 2023 and the shoulder exoskeleton will then be available. A demonstration at your site is already possible now. Please feel free to contact our sales department for an appointment. From October 2022, the 5700 will be used in practical tests at selected industrial companies in Germany. The Shoulder Exoskeleton 5700 is developed and manufactured in Germany. The production site is Illertissen in Bavaria.

The S700 generates the additional force by means of pneumatics. This is generated by a battery-powered compressor.

Intelligent control and adjustable actuators weigh more than passive systems. Like a load backpack, this extra weight is transferred to the hip belt and supported by the strong leg muscles. In contrast to passive, mechanical aids, the S700 not only stores force, but also provides the user with additional strength in the arms, which makes the additional weight on the back seem secondary.

In addition to the exoskeleton, the ExoIQ application was also developed. The application allows you to analyze and evaluate your workplace via video. The current force application is displayed and posture information such as load weight, angle, density, duration and more are evaluated based on an ergonomic screening process. The ExoIQ app is free and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play. You don't need an exoskeleton to analyze a video workshop, just a smartphone or tablet camera. The ergonomics assessment was created by sports scientists at Helmut Schmidt University and is based on the ergonomics lists and assessment methods recognized by the DGUV and the IFA. With the ExolQ app, companies can access assessment areas and application reports. Reports show which activities the exoskeleton supports and which areas need to be reconfigured. But even those without an S700 can take advantage of an interesting feature. Video position recognition technology can be used to record and analyze the physical activities of manufacturing and production. In this way, the applicability or expected release of the exoskeleton can be assessed before extensive testing is performed. For the first time, the Exolo app provides clinicians and ergonomists with a live workplace assessment so they can identify the steps of primary and secondary activities in a time-normalized representation. Automatic reporting captures information about the weight, angle, frequency and duration of the load removed. The weight of the load being carried depends on the carrier group and the task being performed. The ExoIQ app allows you to record and document your work with the exoskeleton. An automatically generated report accurately shows the user's movements and the support provided by the S700. This makes ergonomic workplace analysis much easier. All recordings are saved locally on your own device.
