Ergonomics at work

Exoskeletons aim to offer technical solutions to help people protect their health as they perform physically demanding tasks on a daily basis.

The goal is to provide relief for people who perform physically demanding tasks, such as overhead work, thereby creating healthier working conditions. Ottobock Industrials offers a broad range of passive exoskeletons and solutions for assembly, maintenance, painting and construction.

All of the products are developed in Duderstadt, Germany.

Two companies with the same objective:

Protect the health of workers.

Biosafety was born from the union of two companies with great experience in the sector, with the common objective of solving and preventing health problems in workers.

SOLIDSAFE is a Spanish company specialized in machine safety, consulting and engineering services. Developers of the RASWin platform, an engineering software that allows the user to apply the concepts of functional safety in all machine manufacturing processes.

Iruña Automation Technologies is a company from the Iruña Group, specialized in the distribution of automation material for the industrial market. We carry out a comprehensive service covering the areas of Consulting, Training, Sales, Logistics and Post-sale Management.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The prices for the Paexo exoskeletons vary.
We would be happy to make you an offer. Please contact us via our contact form.

The Paexo products permit full freedom of movement thanks to the biomechanical design. Thus you can sit down with the Paexo Shoulder or pick up fallen objects.

No, you still have to perform all movements yourself. The Paexo Shoulder exoskeleton for example merely reduces load peaks by redistributing loads.

About one quarter (23.2%) of days missed because of inability to work in Germany are due to musculoskeletal disorders (data from 2013). This figure increases with age: among people older than 55, it already accounts for more than 35%. Thus the economic cost of musculoskeletal disorders is considerable (loss of gross value added: approx. EUR 20 billion, 2013 data) (see DGUV).

There is a proven, direct relationship between overhead work and musculoskeletal disorders. Physical relief provided by exoskeletons can contribute to reducing work-related health hazards, time away from work and accidents. An exoskeleton can therefore make a major contribution to preventive healthcare for employees.

Paexo Shoulder is worn close to the body, similar to a backpack. It transfers weight from the arms to the hips with the help of its supporting structures. With its intelligent, purely mechanical cable pull technology, the exoskeleton makes it easier to raise the arms and hold them up, thereby reducing uncomfortable load peaks in the shoulder and neck region.

We pay great attention to the sustainability of our products. An essential part of this is that all textiles can be cleaned. Most parts that can be acutely affected by contamination are removable, washable and reusable. The technical parts can be wiped with a damp cloth. For all products there is the possibility to order hygiene sets for the exchange of textiles.

All the products are Made in Germany.

There are currently five Paexo exoskeletons:
  • Paexo Shoulder for overhead work
  • Paexo Thumb for the thumb joint
  • Paexo Neck for the neck
  • Paexo Soft Back to provide lower back support
  • Paexo Wrist for the wrist

An artificial exoskeleton is a supporting structure worn on the body that relieves strain on the musculoskeletal system during specific activities. A distinction is made between passive and active exoskeletons. A passive exoskeleton does not need an energy supply; its function is purely mechanical. An active exoskeleton is equipped with sensors and motors, which means that it provides more support but depends on an external energy supply.
