Exo-s Overhead Exoskeleton

EXO-S shoulder exoskeleton suit

Redefine overhead work with Hilti's upper-body exoskeleton

Help relieve the strain on your workforce and keep your projects and worksites running smoothly with the upper-body EXO-S exoskeleton suit. Our passive (non-motorized) exoskeleton provides ergonomic support. This helps reduce neck and shoulder pain resulting from repetitive or static tasks above shoulder level such as sanding, grinding or the installation of drywall, channels or pipes.



Prevention is always better than cure

Having to take time off-work due to health problems does not only result into cost of sick leave, it may also impact well-being of those affected and their families. Three out of five workers in the EU report musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), which are persistent pain preventing people to work or participate in society. Suffering from MSD might even lead to early retirement which adds to the social responsibility of an employer. Reducing the risk during manual handling helps to prevent MSD – because prevention is always better than cure!


Reduce stress on shoulders by up to 60% with our passive exoskeleton

The EXO-S is designed for universal use on construction jobs which require working with hands above shoulder height. It's built to withstand the toughest jobsite conditions, and uses mechanical cable pulling technology to shift shoulder load to your hips. This helps to reduce the strain on your shoulders by up to 60%.

Wearing it during highly strenuous tasks can help prevent wear and tear on your upper body to reduce the risk of sick leave.
