The HAPO system is a very light, passive and spring-loaded wearable exoskeleton that supports people who carry out physically demanding and repetitive tasks.
The HAPO supports the upper body through the partial transfer of forces from the upper trunk (via the chest support) to the thighs, without compressing the spine.
This system assists in the manual handling of loads, providing support and reducing strain on the lower back.
Why the HAPO exoskeleton?
- Better management of productivity and performance
- Helps reduce absenteeism and staff turnover
- Helps reduce fatigue
- Reduces the load on the lower back by 30%
- Helps the user’s balance and postural stability
- Encourages the aging population to stay longer into the workforce
- Helps the local population to face the staff shortage crisis
How does it work?
- Preserves the intervertebral discs regardless of posture
- Reduces lower back effort as soon as the angle of the back is greater than 5 °
- Assists the back muscles in straightening the upper body
- Light (1.2kg) and easy to use: Can be put on in 20 seconds like a backpack
- Allows for great freedom of movement: sitting, walking, taking the stairs
- Activate/deactivate system in 1 click
