At work, we do not play with the human body.
Low back pain or back MSD is the leading cause of work stoppage and occupational disease. It affects the well-being and the workers’ ability to maintain their professional activity and has an important social and economic impact on the company.
At Japet, we combine medical sciences and modern robotics to offer you an exoskeleton together with a comprehensive integration approach.
The Japet.W solution aims to restore the body balance to free human capacities at work.
“The Japet exoskeleton is the solution to assist workers who suffer from the back. It relieves the back while maintaining the mobility of the upper body.”
Limit the impact on the spine
Our exoskeleton reduces the impact on the spine of handling heavy loads, repetitive tasks and awkward postures.
Therefore, it permits to decrease the number of occupational accidents and work stoppages for low back pain.
The goal: relieving the workers’ backs and restoring the abilities of the ones suffering from low back pain to maintain employment.
Our robotic exoskeleton follows and adjusts itself in real time to the user’s movements and preserves muscle activity in the lumbar area.
Thus, the worker regains confidence in the performance of his movements.
The goal: Maintaining the workers’ mobility and preserve the initial productivity.
Limit at-risk postures
Our exoskeleton maintains the user’s back and limits the postures which pose a risk. It promotes the good postures and secures gestures.
The goal: Reducing the risk of injury and occupational accidents.

Your online diagnosis
You have identified a workstation which poses a risk and would like to ensure that the exoskeleton is a relevant solution?
Our online diagnosis allows you to check in less than 5 minutes if our exoskeleton meets your needs. Thanks to the measuring of biomechanical gain and the calculation of the return on investment, you will be able to evaluate the results of its integration.
Wearable Medicine for work
A design guided and validated by clinicians
To ensure the health and safety of users, our exoskeleton was developed with occupational doctors, back surgeons and ergonomists. CE medical certified, its effectiveness has been tested and validated in many scientific studies.
A user centred development
To promote the acceptability and adaptability of the exoskeleton, we have put the user at the heart of the development process. Comfort, discretion, adaptability and usability, our innovation focuses on understanding users’ needs.
A support for the integration
To successfully integrate an exoskeleton, it is important to implement a structured and collective approach. In order to do that, we have developed a training and follow-up protocol to support you in implementing of the exoskeleton in your company.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should the exoskeleton be worn all day?
Since the muscle activity is being preserved, there are no contraindications to wear the exoskeleton all day. However, customising the use on specific tasks maximises adherence and acceptability to the product.
How much does the exoskeleton weigh?
The exoskeleton weighs less than 2 kg, 4.4 lbs.
What is the battery life?
The battery has a battery life of about 7h in continuous use. Each exoskeleton comes with a set of 2 batteries.
