The German Bionic Cray X exoskeleton is a human-machine system that combines human intelligence with machine power by supporting or amplifying the movements of the wearer and thereby reduces compression pressure and potential injury in the lower back area. Furthermore, German Bionic is also committed to researching the role of humans in industry 4.0.
Research is the foundation of everything German Bionic undertakes and is what fuels its innovative prowess. Thanks to the German Bionic IO cloud-based platform, aggregated, anonymized sensory data from exoskeletons is made available for highly specialized research and analysis purposes. It takes research to an even higher level and significantly contributes not only to advancing user health and work productivity, but also to laying the data-scientific foundation for machine learning and AI capabilities.

Wired: An exoskeleton from Augsburg is supposed to change the work on the assembly line
As a physiotherapist, through the collective development of highly innovative exoskeletons, I’m able to apply my knowledge to a completely new technological field and preventatively ensure quality of life for many workers.
At German Bionic I’m able to work independently and creatively in a very diverse team. What’s better than autonomy?
My experience complements the young, dynamic team, so that we can achieve the best possible end result.
