A dedicated local German Bionic team in the U.S. and Canada is taking part at Safety 22. The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) connect industry expertise, a network of like-minded peers and the latest innovations. German Bionic will offer live demonstrations at its stand to highlight how its smart, fully connected Cray X power suit can be effectively deployed in environments where frequent heavy lifting is involved. The lightweight, water-resistant exoskeleton provides up to 66 lbs support per lifting movement for the lower back as well as active walking assistance for the legs. The Cray X also incorporates the unique AI-based Smart Safety Companion early warning system for ergonomics, which helps businesses to optimize their manual handling processes, protect the health of their workers, and achieve their ESG goals.  Safety 22 takes place at McCormick Place West in Chicago, IL, June 27-29, 2022. The German Bionic stand is located at Booth 524. 

“The safety and health of employees is our main focus. With the new technology of our Cray X exoskeleton, we can improve the quality of their daily lives while its unique connectivity capability proves the efficiency gains and improved worker productivity via the German Bionic IO platform,” says David Mack, Managing Director of German Bionic North America.

Smart and sustainable: AI-based workplace safety and long-term performance gains

In the age of Industry 4.0, digitalization, connectivity and artificial intelligence are making systems grow together ever more intelligently, thereby creating the conditions for enhanced workplace safety and effectiveness. By deploying the award-winning fully connected German Bionic Cray X power suit, businesses are realizing the ideal case of humans and machines interacting seamlessly and intuitively with each other. The smart exoskeleton provides up to 66 lbs of support per lifting movement at manual workplaces and is simultaneously integrated into the digital workflow via the German Bionic IO platform.

Visitors to the German Bionic stand at Safety 22 in Chicago will learn more about how companies can use the data collected by the Cray X in real time to make flexible adjustments to their processes. The on-site specialists will explain, for example, how the integrated AI-based Smart Safety Companion early warning system for ergonomics can prevent fatigue, incorrect posture, and poor lifting techniques, thus preventing overload-related errors and injuries. And how comprehensive reporting functions can give companies clear overviews of the effectiveness of their safety measures, thus opening up new potentials for workplace safety and business performance.

Revolutionary: First exoskeleton of its kind to support two body regions simultaneously

The latest generation of the smart exoskeleton opens new dimensions in human augmentation. “We have made the Cray X smarter, more powerful, and more versatile,” says Norma Steller, CPO of German Bionic. “Smarter because we now incorporate our AI-based ergonomics early warning system – the Smart Safety Companion, more powerful because we are now using a 40 V battery platform and have completely revamped the battery management system, and more versatile because the new Cray X is also suited for outdoor use cases as it is now protected against exposure to water and dust in accordance with the IP54 standard, supporting new use cases. But perhaps most revolutionary of all, our Crax X is the first exoskeleton of its kind to support two body regions at the same time: the lower back while lifting and the legs while walking.”
