Exoskeletal arm support reduces risk
The X-Ar is an exoskeletal arm support designed to provide additional support for difficult manual tasks.
The X-Ar is an exoskeletal arm that attaches to your arm and provides dynamic support throughout your natural range of motion. X-Ar can bear the weight of the user's arm and small objects being held while at the same time preserving freedom of movement, which reduces fatigue and discomfort.
X-Ar is designed to assist with a wide range of activities where people work with their arms outstretched, from assembly operations in factories to laboratory tasks to office work.
Applications where the X-Ar can be used include welding, electronics assembly, painting and light manufacturing and assembly.
