MATE exoskeleton enhances workers' strength and performance using zero electric power

technology and innovation company comau has created MATE (muscular aiding tech exoskeleton), an exoskeleton designed for workers which wraps the body like a second skin and replicates dynamic movements. designed in close collaboration with factory workers engaged in manual activities, the wearable device employs a passive spring-based mechanism, meaning that it is completely mechanical, requiring no electric power to function.

developed in collaboration with össur, an icelandic leading non-invasive orthopedic company, and iuvo, a spin-off company of the italian biorobotics institute specialized in wearable technologies, comau‘s exoskeleton provides lightweight, breathable postural support for operators and manual workers. MATE comes in two sizes and provides consistent movement assistance, reduces muscular and cardiac fatigue, and improves posture, precision of repetitive tasks, and quality.
