The company's Model Y is appropriately enough shaped like an upside-down Y, and it is worn like a backpack that's strapped to both the chest and thighs.
Utilizing two independently-controlled electric motors, it provides a maximum of 10 kilogram-force (22 lb-force) of support to the user's waist as they lift or carry heavy objects.
The device operates in three modes, which it switches between automatically.
In Assist mode, it helps pull the user's body up as they straighten from bending forward to pick up an object.
Its Walk mode subsequently turns the motors off when the user is carrying the item, minimizing resistance as they walk.
Once they're putting the object down again, the exoskeleton goes into Brake mode, supporting the waist as the user leans forward with their payload.
It's also IP55 waterproof, meaning that it can withstand water projected at it from a nozzle.
