Battery-free wearable robotic exoskeleton
Discover how Comau’s non-powered wearable exoskeleton – MATE-XB – stores human energy in a spring,
helping workers lift heavy objects and move cumbersome loads with less physical effort and
Mechanical Kinematic Chain
Structure that facilitates the free movement of the user
All parts in direct contact with the user’s body
Torque Generating Box (TGB)
Core mechanism that stores and transforms potential mechanical energy in order to create an adjustable assistive torque
Better ergonomic performance
Easy to wear and quickly adjustable to fit virtually any body frame, the MATE-XB exoskeleton suit is specifically designed to improve ergonomics during lifting and repetitive tasks.
It does so without using motors or batteries by providing passive assistance to the lower back and supporting the user when bending with the legs (squatting), bending forward, or during the repetitive lifting of loads.
Able to support workers handling loads of up to 25kg, the fully passive exoskeleton helps ensure better safety and well-being for operators.
MATE-XB was developed in collaboration with Esselunga, a large retail organization and early adopter who helped validate and test the exoskeleton.
Its lightweight carbon fiber structure is easy to wear and quickly adjustable to fit virtually any body frame.
MATE-XB GIVES YOU THE EXACT LEVEL OF SUPPORT
The assistance provided by the MATE-XB exoskeleton mimics the effect of the trunk flexion on the lower back.
MATE-XB MOVES IN ARMONY WITH YOUR BODY
Thanks to a chain of passive degrees of freedom, the exoskeleton allows the whole user’s freedom of movement.
