Robotic exoskeleton developers to showcase products at Innovation Conference

suitXSVCF is proud to announce that suitX will be a featured exhibitor at the Innovation Conference. The conference, taking place Oct. 9-11 in San Francisco, will feature an "Innovation Lab" with interactive exhibits and displays from cutting-edge companies that will allow attendees to experience and examine groundbreaking products and technology up close. 

suitX, established in 2011 out of the University of California Human Engineering & Robotics Laboratory, develops state-of-the-art robotic exoskeleton systems used for medical and industrial applications. 

Their products include:

  • Phoenix Exoskeleton: The Phoenix exoskeleton is the world's lightest and most advanced exoskeleton designed to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile. In the clinic, at home, and in the workplace Phoenix has successfully enabled many individuals to stand up, walk about, and speak to peers eye-to-eye.

  • Modular Agile eXoskeleton (MAX): The MAX system is designed to provide a flexible exoskeleton solution that can be adapted for a variety of different workplace tasks. The result is a versatile system that allows workers to complete shoulder, low back, and leg intensive tasks with reduced injury risk while remaining comfortable enough to wear all day. 

suitX recently won the top prize of the UAE IA Robotics for Good Competition for Pediatric Medical Exoskeleton – taking home the $1 million USD prize.
