With its core support technology to reduce lower back strain and the most comprehensive set of standard features in any back exoskeleton, BACKX is a leader in the field of back support exoskeletons.
Smart Mode: Maximizes mobility while wearing the device, enabling the user to freely walk, climb up and down stairs and use work vehicles, all while providing protection when needed the most.
Instant Mode: Provides back support to the user in every posture.
Device weighs 7.2lbs/3.2kg
One standard frame adjusts to fit a wide range of height, chest depth and waist sizes.
Passive design allows improved ruggedness, reduced cost and minimal maintenance.
Minimal maintenance necessary. Modular design allows quick change of parts and components.
Soft and breathable harness and minimal contact points maximize comfort.
Designed for use in confined spaces.
Extremely easy to get in and out of the device. Four quick release connections.
Works with tool belts, and can be worn with reflective vests, tyvek suits and work jackets.
Support strength can be quickly changed as required by the user with tools.
BACKX is compatible with shoulderX and legX. Modules can be combined to make 7 different exoskeletons to provide a customized solution for every task.
Designed to withstand harsh environments.
The separate frame and harness architecture enables multiple users to share a universal frame which minimize cost.
A recent study by researchers at U.C. Berkeley and U.C. San Francisco showed an average 60% reduction in EMG muscle activities at four of the most injury-prone lower back muscle groups.
Electrodes were placed over four erector spinae muscle groups on each of eight test subjects who were tested both while wearing and not wearing the BACKX.
The chart shows the substantial decrease in four muscle groups’ activation while subjects were wearing the BACKX.
TSE, in this figure, stands for Trunk Support Exoskeleton; an original technical name for BACKX.

I speak for many people here at Arcelormittal Plate when I say this, over all we are very pleased with our purchase. We continue to identify new tasks in which there is a legitimate purpose for the units, our employees continue to reach out to interact with or wear the units.
