Project Title: Wearable Robot for Load Transportation

Project Description:
Manual material handlers face the risk of developing low back pain due to lifting and lowering heavy loads, impacting their work efficiency, production costs, and daily life. Our project specializes in advanced exoskeleton systems that protect the lower back, enhance mobility, strength, and endurance. Our team has developed back-support exosuits, reducing physical burden by over 30% during manual lifting tasks. We develop cutting-edge technologies to improve productivity and well-being in sectors like industry, healthcare, rehabilitation, and defense.

Startup: ExoTechHK Limited
