Ekso Lifts Your Construction Team
In 2019, the most common cause for workplace injuries was overexertion and fatigue. With 20% of construction workers reporting severe pain, construction workers are five times more likely to report poor health. As US companies pay nearly $62 billion per year for workplace injuries and our economy faces an ever-increasing need for efficiency, we designed EVO and EksoZeroG to address these problems.
Power without Pain: Ekso EVO
EVO is a spring-loaded exoskeleton vest designed to support one’s arms when working overhead at 90° or more. With its incredibly robust build and lightweight frame, EVO tracks workers’ movements with ease and sustains stamina.
Construction workers can retain energy longer, getting work done quicker, and being more accurate. Business leaders benefit from a faster, less costly, and healthier workforce.
Let EVO take the weight off your shoulders.
EVO was designed based on field feedback from leading companies around the globe. Based on this, we designed EVO to be unobtrusive, have minimal contact points, and provide the widest range of assistance in the industry. Here are just a few of the applications for which our partners around the globe use EVO every day:
Logistics, fulfillment, and shipping
Working Without the Weight: EksoZeroG
EksoZeroG is a robotic arm that holds heavy tools on aerial work platforms and scaffolding. This spring-loaded robotic arm transfers the weight of heavy tools to its base, then into the ground. The unit can be mounted in less than a minute and makes large jobs much easier.
EksoZeroG was designed to help ease the physical burden on construction and demolition workers so workers can complete heavy hand tool tasks with less fatigue, better workmanship, and fewer workplace injuries.
EksoZeroG helps construction workers take a load off — literally. Bearing the weight of heavy tools and machinery, ZeroG works with rivet busters, chipping hammers, grinders, and more. Here are some areas in which EksoZeroG can benefit:
Sheet metal workers
Don’t just take our word for it.
Virginia Tech conducted a study to evaluate the usability and effectiveness of Ekso for overhead work. In this third-party, independent review, researchers found that Ekso demonstrated a high spring-force, providing lift assistance to reduce shoulder strain, reduce spinal stress, and increase work speed.
The study suggests that Ekso supports and unloads the shoulder complex during activities that are typically shoulder straining and that Ekso reduced task completion time.
