In Safe Work Australia’s 2023 Report it was found that the second highest rate of serious injury claims came from the construction injury accounting for 12.2% of all claims, with body stresses being the number reason accounting for over 30% of claims.

It’s no surprise given that Construction work can lead to a myriad of physical health problems including:

  • Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs): These injuries and disorders that directly affect the human body's movement. Workers become more susceptible to strains, sprains, and injuries from repetitive motions, heavy lifting, and awkward postures.

  • Back Injuries: One of the most common issues in construction work is from back pain and back related injuries, including herniated discs and lower back strain. These injuries often result from lifting heavy materials, bending, and twisting movements. Our exoskeletons can help to mitigate this by redistributing the load and supporting proper posture.

  • Joint Wear and Tear: Without proper support, the continuous strain on knees, shoulders, and elbows from lifting, carrying, and other repetitive movements can lead to joint degradation, arthritis, and tendonitis over time.

  • Fatigue: Physical fatigue is a major factor in construction. This can lead to decreased productivity and increased risk of accidents due to reduced alertness and reaction time.

  • Increased Risk of Falls and Injuries: Fatigue, muscle weakness, and overexertion add up over time and as a result increases the risk of slips, trips, and falls.

  • Long-term Health Issues: Over time, the cumulative effects can lead to chronic pain, reduced mobility, and a higher likelihood of needing surgical interventions. These conditions not only affect a worker's quality of life but also their ability to work in the construction industry long-term.


Boosting Efficiency with Exxovantage's Construction Exoskeletons

Exxovantage's exoskeletons help significantly to improve safety and productivity on the construction site, making tasks quicker and less physically taxing. Our technology enhances worker capability, safety, and overall site productivity.

  • Reduced Fatigue & Injuries: Workers experience less physical strain, leading to longer productive periods without the risk of injury.

  • Increased Load Capacity: Enables lifting heavier materials with ease, speeding up construction processes.

  • Improved Posture: Improved support and stability allow for better mobility and proper posture when performing tasks.

  • Reduced Down Times: Reducing work-related strain and injury means a reduction in downtime for out-of-work staff as well as an increased retention of existing staff.

  • Our range of exoskeletons is designed to assist construction workers in every job facet. This includes:

  • Back Exoskeletons: for work that requires repetitive lifting or a maintained forward leaning position, such as flooring installations

  • Shoulder Exoskeletons: for work that requires your arms to be held up for extended periods, such as electrical wiring or ceiling installations.

  • Wrist Exoskeletons: to provide wrist support when operating tools such as drills for extended periods.

  • Upper-Body Exoskeletons: To assist with heavy lifting for larger objects such as construction materials, wood, concrete and even window panes.

We also provide a range of diagnostic equipment such as Workplace Wearables, which monitor your teams, health and fitness, performance & navigation. We then take this analytical data better to improve the efficacy and safety of the work environment.


Innovative Design for Exoskeleton Use in Construction

Exxovantage leads the way with our construction exoskeleton suit, specifically engineered to meet the demands of the construction industry. Our innovative design is about improving strength and efficiency. It focuses on user comfort and safety, ensuring workers can accomplish their tasks with greater ease and less risk of injury.

  • Ergonomic Fit: Each Exosuit is designed to fit comfortably and naturally to ensure that workers can focus on the task at hand without any discomfort.

  • Adjustable Settings: Our range of construction exoskeletons are all adjustable, allowing for multiple body types and ensuring a comfortable and personalised fit.

  • Lightweight Materials: All our exoskeletons are made from durable, lightweight materials ranging from just under 1kg to just over 5.5kg.

  • Simple to Use: All our exoskeletons are designed to provide passive assistance, so all you need to do is put on the exosuit, adjust to your fit and get to work.

  • No Battery Required: The intuitive designs of our exoskeletons mean no batteries or chargers are required for use.

Exxovantage sets a new standard for safety and efficiency in construction work by introducing the construction exoskeleton suit into your workforce. Our commitment to innovation and quality means we provide solutions that meet today's needs and anticipate tomorrow's challenges.


Back Exoskeletons for Construction

We supply a variety of innovative passive back exoskeletons suitable for use in construction and engaging in physically demanding tasks by providing essential support and reducing strain on critical areas of the body.

  • HAPO Exoskeletons: These light, passive, and spring-loaded wearables transfer forces from the upper trunk to the thighs. The design helps improve balance and posture and reduces the load on the lower back.

  • AUXIVO Exosuit: Weighing less than 0.9kg, this textile exoskeleton supports back and hip muscles during lifting or forward-leaning work, allowing the wearer to keep the position they're in for longer periods.

  • INNOPYS Exoskeletons: The Innophys' Musclesuit provides up to 25.5 kg of auxiliary force. Its lightweight, air-pressure design allows continuous use without power, supporting construction workers in lifting and forward-leaning tasks.

  • DAIYA Exosuits: Enhancing movement with artificial muscles; these suits support bending & lifting. DAIYA exosuits are very lightweight and allow ease of movement in challenging environments.

Shoulder Exoskeletons for Construction

Designed to reduce the strain and discomfort from continuous overhead work, these lightweight, passive exoskeletons are perfect for construction workers who deal with wiring, ceiling installations or any other type of work that requires overhead work.

  • Dynamic Arm Support: The CDYS Exoskeleton is engineered to provide elevated support to the arms; this assistance significantly reduces shoulder fatigue and lowers the risk of musculoskeletal disorders.

  • Adjustable Support: The Shoulder Exoskeleton comes with seven levels of adjustable support for the arms, allowing for more support if needed.

  • Custom Fit: Suitable for individuals from 165cm to 195cm, ensuring a broad range of construction workers can benefit from its ergonomic design.

  • Durable & Lightweight: The exoskeleton's frame is made from carbon fibre, weighing less than 2kg. This ensures maximum support without the bulk, enabling workers to move freely and comfortably.
