German Bionic debuts its lightest powered exosuit yet at CES 2023

German Bionic, the robotic exoskeleton startup behind the Cray X, will showcase two new posture protection products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada this week. The Apogee is the company’s newest and lightest powered exosuit designed for commercial and industrial use, while the Smart SafetyVest will “bring ergonomic monitoring and protection to every worker,” according to a Monday release. .

The Apogee builds on lessons learned during the development of the Cray X, resulting in German Bionic’s lightest exosuit to date. Despite its flexibility, it can offset up to 66 pounds of load on the user’s lower back per lifting motion and offers active walking assistance to reduce fatigue. The SafetyVest, on the other hand, does not actively assist the user in picking up heavy objects, but monitors their movement and body position while working and offers “personalized, data-driven ergonomic feedback, as well as assessments and recommended actions. “

Apogee and SafetyVest both rely on the German Bionic IO architecture to collect, monitor, analyze and report user ergonomic data. This is usually done via the built-in display or via audible alerts when the user is actively performing dangerous movements.

“With our new garments, we’re giving hardworking people the tools they need to do their jobs more safely and sustainably,” Norma Steller, CPO of German Bionic, said in the release. “Our new ergonomic garments – Apogee and Smart SafetyVest – along with our award-winning Cray X exoskeleton allow us to provide the right support for just about any business or work environment where manual labor is performed. And with the German Bionic IO data platform, we also provide a powerful analysis tool for workplace ergonomics and processes.”

Details are still scarce ahead of the show, but German Bionic will be displaying its wares at CES, booth #7141 in the West Hall if you attend in person. If not, no worries, Engadget will have full show coverage with how-to reviews, videos and news throughout the week – stay tuned!
