The Seismic suit has been designed in line with OSHA standards and developed in conjunction with teacher customers to protect workers’ core, upper and lower back in repetitive, awkward and hazardous postures. These powered postures include standing, forward lean, backward lean, squatting, stooping, and kneeling, the company said in a press release.
The suit automatically senses and responds to the workers movements and delivers powered strength from its seven twisted string actuators when needed. The suit has a battery life of up to ten hours to ensure the worker can complete their shift uninterrupted. The Seismic suit can deliver 100 per cent sustained powered support, essentially suspending the worker without any muscle engagement.
The Seismic suit is lightweight, breathable, and comfortable with a vest style upper that utilises the latest materials for cooling and comfort, and a removable belt which houses the battery and drive components so that they can be easily swapped out. Flex-drive muscles are routed within the garment and are aligned with the wearer's anatomical muscles, with quick release connections if they need to be removed. The suit features an integrated lumbar mechanism, external controls, with haptic and LED feedback, according to Seismic.
Purpose-built for manufacturing and logistics workplace, the suit doesn’t interfere with existing PPE and can be put on, taken off in less than 60s, laundered for over 50 industrial cycles and serviced quickly to minimise time and associated labour cost. Special design details in the suit’s garment pattern, lightweight technical components, and low-profile form factor prevent damage when in contact with external products, increase range of motion, and workers agility while performing tasks.
