Made in Germany

German Bionic Systems, headquartered in Augsburg with bases in Berlin and Tokyo, is a German manufacturer that develops and builds exoskeletons for use in industrial production.

German Bionic CRAY X was specially designed for people manually handling goods and tools, to reduce compression pressure in the lower back area. Under the leadership of Dr. Peter Heiligensetzer, the company is researching the role of humans in Industry 4.0.

To aid research on intelligent human-machine and AI systems, German Bionic Systems is developing an open software platform. Data gathered by the exoskeleton’s sensors will be made freely available for analysis and research purposes in the future.
