WHY IS MATE UNIQUE?
MATE allows replication of the dynamic movements of the shoulder like a second skin
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.
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.
MATE fits the human body with minimum to no protrusions for extra safety and security.
FANT DONNING AND
Easily put on or take off MATE in less than 30 seconds.
Thanks to 5 regulation systems and the availability of 2 different sizes, MATE can be adjusted to fit any body.
- Garment interface
- Mechanical shoulder chain
- Torque generator box
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.
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.

Zero torque at 0°
Max torque at 90°
- 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
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.
