EVO is designed to provide power without the pain.
At Ekso, we believe every injury is preventable.
Our mission is to eliminate worker injuries. To that end, EVO was developed in collaboration with customers and partner feedback to address the unique challenges of the industrial worker. EVO, the next evolution of EksoVest, is the world’s most durable, naturally-tracking, and assistive exoskeleton vest.
EVO features additional technology we’ve been working on, based on market feedback. We’ve improved the design, manufacturing, and ergonomics to ensure that EVO delivers an exceptional user experience for workers of all sizes and trades.
WHAT IS EVO?
We built EVO because we heard you.
Our first industrial exoskeleton vest, EksoVest, changed the way in which construction workers and manufacturers think about safety. Allowing leading companies like Ford and Boeing to reduce production cost and worker injuries while increasing productivity and efficiency, EksoVest was field tested around the world for three years. Your feedback has been heard and we are proud to introduce you to our new solution: EVO.
In order to reduce the barrier to entry, we have created a flexible acquisition model, making it simple to adopt EVO for your workers with a great return on investment.
We lessened the bulkiness and weight of our new vest. With a new customized fit, natural tracking, and reduced weight, EVO is incredibly comfortable.
We wanted to make extended use effortless, so EVO has minimal touch points, keeping you cool while EVO does the heavy lifting for you.
With rigorous field testing, EVO is quality guaranteed and built around data collected throughout it’s development and in the field.
EVO is designed to provide power without the pain.
You can’t move without pain if you can’t move naturally. EVO has been designed to move together with your body, allowing for strength throughout your natural range of motion. Designed with minimal touch-points, EVO allows for an increased range of motion with the same support you expect with Ekso, allowing for more work with less pain.
Benefits of EVO:
- Reduces worker fatigue

- Prevents workplace injuries

GET A DEMO
Try it to believe it.
EVO is now available in North & South America and will be available in EMEA in early 2021.
Light weight, no compromises.
EVO’s patented stacked-link structure seamlessly follows the user’s arm through the full range of motion while providing proper joint alignment. Extreme positions — like reaching directly overhead, across the body, or even into a back pocket for a phone — are unrestricted.
EVO’s adjustable, high-force actuators are proven to be extremely durable with millions of cycles of testing and field data. The assistance level can be adjusted for the user and task by easily swapping out the set of compact gas springs. Different levels can even be selected for each arm if appropriate for the task.
ANTI FATIGUE POWER
Batteries not included - and not needed.
With an independent load path, EVO has completely decoupled left and right shoulder support structures, allowing the full flexibility of a user’s torso and waist, such that twisting and bending to the site feel completely natural. The user’s back is also completely free of structure, allowing unrestricted airflow and leaving plenty of room for a fall harness. EVO is designed to only contact the user’s body where absolutely essential – including the elimination of annoying shoulder straps – while still staying firmly in place during use. The result is more comfortable and cooler to wear than even a backpack, especially in hot environments.
Requiring no additional batteries, charging, or electrical power of any kind, EVO allows for a full day of wear without any down time. It has assistive power can be easily activated and asymmetrically controlled by a toggle switch on each shoulder, allowing for individuals to put the vest on and work without any additional help.
EVO is covered under a limited warranty for 1 year. The details of this warranty can be found in the Operator Manual.
The entire set of soft goods can be changed in less than 5 minutes.
The soft goods are removable so that they can be washed or swapped to fit a different operator.
EVO requires minimal maintenance. Keeping your EVO clean is the most important aspect of maintenance. The recommended maintenance/cleaning schedule and instructions are included in the Operator Manual.
Yes, EVO is designed so an operator can easily put it on by themselves, similar to putting on a jacket.
Most people can put their EVO on in 15 – 30 seconds.
While wearing EVO, you should only lift the same amount of weight as you would without the device on.
EVO provides 5 – 15 lb. (2.2 – 6.8 kg) of list assistance per arm to give your natural strength a boost throughout your work day. This is NOT intended to give you super strength but instead give you super endurance and reduce fatigue so that you have more energy and less soreness at the end of your shift. Whatever payload you normally lift (a 4 lb. torque wrench, a 10 lb. component, or even just the weight of your arm) will feel lighter with the boost you get from your EVO.
