The technology behind SafeLift has been developed at Harvard over the past decade, and is based on the latest advances in robotics, apparel design, and movement science. The suit applies assistance in parallel with the user’s muscles and responds to their movement in milliseconds. It combines state-of-the-art motion tracking technology with powerful robotic actuators and integrates it all into a lightweight and easily wearable device that doesn’t restrict normal activities.
The result is a device that takes 30% of strain off of people when they perform physically strenuous tasks, supporting the back and hips to reduce risk of injury, improve lifting form and posture, and greatly lower fatigue and soreness. Even better, it is incredibly simple to integrate our system into your workplace: it takes less than 30 seconds to put on, one size fits most, and the suit is ready to wear right out of the box.
“ It moves with me and helps me have a better posture; I feel my back is less fatigued after wearing it. “
