Overexertion

Overexertion by incorrect lifting is one of the most common injuries at workplaces where heavy lifting is a part of the daily tasks. This project is about replacing the traditional exoskeleton and make it in a new and more affordable way with the help of soft robotics. By using air-filled channels that, triggered by muscle sensors, expand and stabilize your back and give your knees extra strength when lifting incorrectly the risk of injury could be decreased greatly. The benefits of using this technique results in no heavy metal parts and the suit will be flexible, light and assist your movements in the best possible way.
