The PHOENIX Medical Exoskeleton is the world’s lightest and most advanced exoskeleton designed to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile. In the clinic, at home, and in the workplace Phoenix has successfully enabled many individuals to stand up, walk about, and speak to peers eye-to-eye. Phoenix has only two actuators at its hip; the knee joints are designed to allow support during stance and ground clearance during swing.
backX has shown the ability to reduce the strain on a wearer’s lower back (L5/S1 disc) by an average of 60% while stooping, lifting objects, bending or reaching. Decreasing strain in the muscles of the lower back can reduce the compression force around the L5-S1 vertebra lowering the risk of back injuries and increasing user endurance.
