Designed and built for dynamic, real-world environments like factories, construction sites and distribution centers, the non-powered vest offers protection and support against fatigue and injury by reducing the stress and strain of high-frequency, long-duration activities that can take a toll on the body over time.
Primary tools used with the vest vary by application including applications that use no tools at all, but just require the manipulating parts by hand while overhead. It’s optimised to support the weight of the worker’s arms so that any overhead work puts less of a strain on the worker’s shoulders and arms. The vest provides 2.2kg to 6.8kg of lift assistance per arm when the system is activated. As a result, the worker will get a noticeable level of support for overhead tasks that require either no tools at all or tasks requiring tools that weigh up to approximately 3.6kg pounds.
Common Tools used with the Ekso Vest
Paint Sprayers and Brushes

Suspended Ceiling Panels
The physical demands of repetitive overhead work takes its toll on workers. Some workers performing tasks in motor vehicle assembly lift their arms an average of 4,600 times per day, or about 1 million times per year, increasing the possibility of fatigue or injury.
That’s where the EksoVest comes in. This upper body exoskeleton system elevates and supports a worker’s arms while performing tasks. A truly innovative product with proven results.
