Cray X
Scroll Down
The German Bionic Cray X exoskeleton supports the wearer’s lower back when lifting heavy loads, by actively simulating and strengthening movements.
 
Kind of Support
Servomotor / active assistance
 
Loads
Lifting, carrying and lowering of heavy goods, partly with long leverage (for example crates/pallets) – partly for high bending, compression and torsional loads on the spine.
German Bionic Cray X has been specially designed to reduce compression pressure in the lower back area, for people manually handling goods and tools.

The German Bionic Cray X exoskeleton is a human-machine system that combines human intelligence with machine power, by supporting and strengthening the wearer’s movements, thereby reducing the risk of workplace accidents and load-bearing injuries. German Bionic Cray X has been specially designed for people manually handling goods and tools, to reduce compression pressure in the lower back area.

Exoskeletons come into play when human work cannot realistically be replaced by full automation or robotics systems. Included in this are working processes in industrial production, such as in the automotive industry, as well as in physically demanding work in the construction and logistics sectors. The German Bionic Cray X employs advanced micromechanical components and an ultralight ergonomic carrying system.

Extends health and decision-making freedom

The Cray X relieves back strain and prevents injuries by simulating and augmenting the wearer’s movements without taking them over completely – ensuring the prevention of muscle loss. The exoskeleton doesn’t affect wearer actions or decisions, but rather enhances their capabilities through the active-assistive support it provides.

Inclusion potential

Exoskeletons such as the German Bionic Cray X are tools that facilitate the inclusion of people with reduced lifting abilities, thus reducing gender and age barriers in workplaces.

Driving research

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 availa- ble 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 pro- ductivity, but also to laying the data-scientific foundation for machine learning and AI capabilities.
