What is the ‘Muscle Suit’?

The Muscle Suit is an innovative Japanese-made exoskeleton designed to help workers become more productive and improve their working conditions. It is also a great way for people with mobility difficulties to enjoy freedom in their daily lives and activities such as gardening or DIY.
The Muscle Suit is designed to be used by men and women of all ages, not least because it weighs only 3.8 kg and has an intuitive and simple donning system.

The Power of Air

The exoskeleton provides support to the operator’s muscles using air pressure, it adapts to each person’s movements and, above all, does not require electricity. This makes it suitable for outdoor, water contact, such as the agricultural or the food industries.

In addition, the absence of power supply allows the Muscle Suit to be used continuously for several hours after filling. If you feel that the assist power has weakened, simply use the pump to fill it with air.

Muscle Suit is able to assist the wearer’s movements with up to 25.5 kgf of auxiliary force, supporting the back and reducing not only the workload but also the risk of injury, with a positive effect on working conditions.

An Artificial Muscle

The Muscle Suit uses a McKibben-type artificial muscle as its driving force. The rubber tube is encased in a mesh made from polyester monofilament and both ends are secured with metal in this simple configuration.

The Muscle Suit is made up of a back frame and thigh frame, and a rotation axis that connects the two. The upper end of the artificial muscle is affixed to the upper portion of the back frame, and the connected wire is affixed to the rotation axis at the lower end. With the compression of the artificial muscle, the wire is pulled and the back frame rotates around the rotation axis. As the thigh frame, which is affixed to the rotation axis, rotates in the opposite direction, the upper body is held upright using the thighs as the fulcrum
