X-ARM – «3rd hand»-type passive exoskeleton developed for work with hand guided tools, weighing from 2 to 40 kg.
It allows to unload the locomotor system of the operator during the work with hand tools by the way of redistributing the tool weight through the legs exoskeleton design.
Exoskeleton X-Arm can be used with a wide variety of tools (perforator, angle grinder, drill, etc.) and equipped with a battery, as well.
It allows to improve efficiency and speed of technological operations while removing the load from the back and arms.
X-Arm reduces the equipment weight and allows to speed up repairs. It significantly reduces the equipment downtime and keeps the costs down.
Up to 17 kg (depending on configuration)
Experiments confirm operator endurance increase up to 91% in static positon and up to 38% in motion
Proven operator productivity improvement by 80% and higher depending on the technological operation
Exoskeleton is made of lightweight and durable aluminum-base alloy (duraluminum) and durable fabrics
Availability for Russian market (sanction restrictions and possible barriers because of potential “double-purpose” position assignment neutralization)
Example: when dismantling turbine unit body at PJSC MMK – estimated payback period for 1 exoskeleton – 1 working day
Efficiency improvement, fatigue reduction
Cross functional clamp for a wide range of tools
Price affordability as compared to analogues
Under the testing conducted on the basis of PJSC MMK the economical effectiveness of «3rd HAND»-type exoskeleton was confirmed
