Back-assist exosuit


Apex 2, the latest version of HeroWear’s back-assist exosuit, fuses science and comfort to provide wearers with unparalleled protection and wearability. It’s designed to assist workers who frequently perform demanding tasks such as lifting and sustained or repeated bending without restricting movement. The suit weighs less than 3 pounds and can alleviate 75 pounds of strain off a worker’s back while reducing muscle strain and fatigue by up to 40% without motors or batteries.
