Hi Guys, Philip English from RoboPhil.com and today we are seeing the V22 Ergoskeleton in action!
The human body isn’t designed to endure the physical tolls of unnatural postures and repetitive motions of the workforce. So the patented ErgoSkeleton is a wearable, self powered lifting device that combines the core principles of ergonomics and exoskeletons. The ErgoSkeleton products are aimed to improve human productivity, health, and wellness during active work.
Ergonomics, the study of people’s efficiency in their working environment and Exoskeleton, an external skeleton that provides support for the body. Hence, the name Ergoskeleton.

- The other grip you can use is the over under Grip, this is when one hand is taking most of the weight, with the other hand on top of the opposite top corner for stability
- When you engage the clutch make sure your elbows are bent 90 degree’s and extend your arms wide to accommodate the cords

- Check cords are not twisted when putting back
