The German Bionic Cray X was specially designed for people manually handling goods and tools, to reduce compression pressure and potential injury in the lower back area. Under the leadership of Dr. Peter Heiligensetzer, the company is 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.

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.
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.
