FLx ErgoSkeleton Postural Support Device by Strong Arm Technologies, Inc.

Home > Winners > #46781


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
FLx ErgoSkeleton

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Postural Support Device

INSPIRATION:
We are joined in the belief that blue-collar workers, who make up the backbone of the United States economy, deserve advanced design and technology to empower them for greater safety and performance. These industrial workers are expected to perform with strength, agility, and endurance at the level of professional athletes. With these expectations in mind, we wanted to design products that support who we consider the Industrial Athlete.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The StrongArm FLx ErgoSkeleton is designed for active workers whom we consider to be Industrial Athletes. In combination with proper ergonomics training, the FLx is designed to help remind wearers to maintain proper posture while lifting. The Posture Feedback System encourages behavioral changes in workers which may include pivoting instead of twisting when turning to the side, positioning the body closer to the load, and bending at the knees to lift with the legs instead of the back.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The FLx ErgoSkeleton converts user body movements into mechanical feedback. The FLx is offered in different waist belt sizes and has a height adjustment for varying users. It also offers strength-of-flexibility adjustment for use in different job applications.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in early 2015 and was completed in February 2016 in Brooklyn, New York.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Made in the United States with globally sourced materials.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Length Adjustment of 427mm to 488mm

TAGS:
FLx, ExoSkeleton, Ergonomics, Ergoskeleton, Posture, Design, Industrial, Athlete, Safety, Worker

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
