WHY IS MATE UNIQUE?

MATE allows replication of the dynamic movements of the shoulder like a second skin

PHYSIOLOGICAL

MOVEMENT

MATE complies with the physiological movements of the shoulders. Thanks to a chain of passive degrees of freedom, the MATE exoskeleton is perfectly aligned with the flexion-extension axis of the human shoulder, creating both a comfortable interaction and an extraordinary human-machine synergy.

ADJUSTABLE ASSISTANCE

The assistance level can be easily set by the worker to quickly adapt to the ongoing activity with no need to remove the device.

SAFETY LOCK MECHANISM

A safety mechanism guarantees safe use of the device during the donning/doffing procedure.

COMPACT AND

SAFE STRUCTURE

MATE fits the human body with minimum to no protrusions for extra safety and security.

FANT DONNING AND

DOFFING

Easily put on or take off MATE in less than 30 seconds.

FITS ANYONE

Thanks to 5 regulation systems and the availability of 2 different sizes, MATE can be adjusted to fit any body.

LIGHTWEIGHT

TECHNOLOGY

  1. Garment interface
  2. Mechanical shoulder chain
  3. Torque generator box

BATTERY-FREE MECHANISM

MATE’s spring-loaded torque generator box stores energy during shoulder extension and returns it to the user during shoulder flexion – all without the need for batteries or a power source.

MATE WORKS

JUST THE WAY YOU DO

Like your own physiological movements, the assistance torque provided by the MATE exoskeleton suit follows your individual shoulder flexion/extension angle, giving the exact level of support when and where you need it.

  • No discontinuation of movement during elevation.
  • Fine-tune the level of assistance as needed.

MATE MOVES IN HARMONY WITH YOUR SHOULDERS

Thanks to a chain of passive degrees of freedom, the flexion-extension rotation axis of the human shoulder is aligned with that of MATE. This ensures optimal comfort and  creates an extraordinary human-machine synergy.

MATE BEHIND THE SCENES

are part of our production process.   

The MATE exoskeleton suit was made with a user-centric design approach, in which workers were involved since the beginning of the project and their needs and suggestions have driven the development process.
