• The AIRFRAME is designed for workers who perform repetitive tasks at or above chest level. • The intent is to relieve the upper extremity muscles and joints from discomfort. • The goal is for the user to perform tasks as normal, but with less fatigue and strain on the body. • This patented wearable device uses a mechanical support system with variable assistance relative to the user’s arm angle. • The exoskeleton has a rigid aluminum frame, springs, pulleys, and cables, which kick into action when the wearer raises their arms, and deactivate when the arms are lowered again.
The Levitate AIRFRAME is a wearable, lightweight technology engineered to improve upper extremity musculoskeletal health in professionals and skilled trade workers who engage in repetitive arm motion and/or static elevation of the arms. The AIRFRAME lowers exertion levels by up to 80% – keeping workers healthier and more productive, while mitigating healthcare and disability costs.
HOW IT WORKS
The AIRFRAME transfers the weight of the arms from the shoulders, neck and upper back to the body’s core, evenly distributing energy to reduce stress. It slips easily on and off, and moves seamlessly with the wearer without intruding into the workspace or limiting motion or dexterity.
The AIRFRAME’s mechanical support system progressively activates as the arm is raised, and gradually releases as the arm is lowered, resulting in just the right level of support – at just the right time. It’s personalized to fit each wearer, so they can use their arms as normal while enjoying reduced fatigue and comfort they never thought possible.
LOWERS INJURY RISK
There are more than 650,000 cases of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WSMD) annually. The AIRFRAME lowers exertion levels by up to 80%, significantly lowering injury risk.
WMSDs are responsible for $50 billion in lost productivity annually. The AIRFRAME keeps workers healthy, and production humming.
IMPROVES QUALITY AND PRECISION
Muscle stress and fatigue are the enemy of productivity. The AIRFRAME allows workers to maintain quality and precision for longer periods of time.
LOWERS HEALTHCARE AND DISABILITY COSTS
Musculoskeletal disorders represent $1 of every $3 spent on worker’s compensation. The AIRFRAME limits exposure to these injuries, reducing costs and boosting profits.
We offer full, on-site training for both workers and safety engineers on how to custom fit and operate The AIRFRAME for all users.
LIGHT AND COMFORTABLE
The AIRFRAME’s sleek, aerodynamic design and lightweight material construction make wearing the device feel nearly unnoticeable.
Each AIRFRAME is custom-fitted to the individual user, allowing the device to fit comfortably on any body type or size.
FULL RANGE OF MOTION
The AIRFRAME offers full range of motion, allowing the user to easily perform any task without limitation or stiffness.
NO POWER REQUIRED
The AIRFRAME requires no electrical power – it is mechanically engineered to rely on a patented system of pulleys.
