YOUR BENEFITS
01
An immediate lift to efficiency
Mehr erfahren

With 30 kg support per lifting movement and active walking assistance, the Cray X reduces the level of physical exertion required of workers while conducting their tasks. This means that fatigue and potentially resulting errors can be slashed throughout entire shifts. And thanks to the clever onboarding assistant, efficiency and overall performance can be boosted starting from day one.

02
Clever & connected for sustained, maximum performance
Mehr erfahren

The fully connected German Bionic solution expands the possibilities and takes human augmentation to new levels.  By protecting the physical and psychological health of manual workers – such as through the Smart Safety Companion real-time ergonomic early warning system – unhealthy lifting and fatigue are effectively avoided leading to significant cuts in absenteeism and employee turnover rates. Moreover, the platform embraces workers as part of the digital workflow and facilitates the interoperable exchange of data between all enterprise systems. This not only streamlines processes; it also provides the basis to identify and resolve bottlenecks and other workflow issues. It all adds up to healthier and happier workers, lower costs, greater productivity, increased operational reliability as well as tighter processes across the board – day in, day out.

03
Helps overcome the shortage of skilled workers

Smart Safety Companion

The German Bionic SMART SAFETY COMPANION provides a holistic approach to workplace health & safety. It represents an intelligent, real-time early warning system to counter poor postures and lifting practices while preventing errors and injuries occurring due to human fatigue. By applying the knowledge of ergonomics experts in real time directly where it’s needed most – at the worker on the shop floor – it immediately unlocks the gates to entirely new potentials for the protec­tion of workers and business performance, while simultaneously offering extensive reporting functions. The cloud-based SMART SAFETY COMPANION is available on demand for any connected Cray X power suit, via OTA.

KEY FEATURES

The Smart Safety Companion revolutionizes workplace ergonomics, helping to win the fight against fatigue and subsequent human errors

  • Immediate notification of unfavorable loads, critical repetitions, risky movements, bad postures (via digital twin)
  • Intelligently recognizes and warns of symptoms and levels of fatigue to avoid critical overload
  • Highlights good posture & lifting practices in real time
  • Gives smart break recommendations
  • Suggests quick & easy stretching routines to maintain worker health & productivity
  • Extensive reporting functions for instant overviews of the impact of implemented health & safety measures

GREATER VERSATILITY
The Cray X provides immediate support for workers involved in manual handling tasks. But that is just the beginning for making logistics processes more reliable and effective in the long term. Only German Bionic provides a complete system solution that can be integrated into digital logistics and smart warehouse workflows. It also delivers real-time data to measure its impact – not only for the health and wellbeing of workers – but also for sustainably boosting efficiency in supply chain processes and ultimately the company’s profitability.
The world’s first and only fully connected exoskeleton platform seamlessly integrates in all industrial IoT environments and Smart Factory ecosystems. It optimizes processes and helps maximize ROI using real-time data. This also serves as the basis for machine learning and the development of more advanced AI applications like the pioneering early warning system for ergonomics, the “Smart Safety Companion”. Besides enhancing workplace safety and health it also lets businesses easily monitor and report on the achievement of their increasingly important ESG and sustainability goals.
The Cray X reaches new levels in human augmentation. Made with strong, ultra-lightweight carbon, the Cray X smart power suit supports two regions of the body: The lower back when lifting by actively simulating and amplifying movements with up to 30 kg relief per lift, and the legs when walking from a to b. It thereby protects the workers’ health, reduces fatigue and the risk of accidents and errors. This results in increased operational efficiency and workplace productivity.
Power for whenever and wherever it is needed. Fully dust and waterproof in accordance with the IP54 standard, the Cray X is equipped to handle even the most challenging working environments. And thanks to battery hot-swapping capabilities, uptime is virtually unlimited. The upshot: Suitability for many more use cases including construction sites, outdoor warehouses, and car workshops.

The Challenge

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are responsible for almost a quarter of all sick days in Germany and account for an annual economic loss of more than 30 billion euros due to lost gross output, as calculated by the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz). This risk arises because a third of all employees are required to lift heavy loads at work. The smart power suit from German Bionic has been designed to remedy this situation and actively prevents excessive strain and injury occurring due to lifting at the workplace.

Safer lifting
Effective physical support for warehousing tasks including commissioning, picking, (un)loading, (de)palletizing and lifting in general.
Greater agility
Integrates easily in all industrial IoT environments and Smart Factory ecosystems to optimize processes throughout the entire supply chain.
Smarter logistics
Adds the flexibility and problem-solving creativity of humans into processes where full automation or other aids are impractical or not viable.
Reduced fatigue
Supporting two body regions, the Cray X reduces exhaustion and preserves worker energy levels while lifting and walking.
Increased versatility
Challenging environments aren’t a problem thanks to IP54
dust and waterproof protection.
