20% of work accidents are back related.
The heavy lifting, the awkward postures and repetitive movements of the back generate fatigue, discomfort, and pain to the workers. They are the cause of 3 out of 4 back pains at work.
Gradually, these high lumbar constraining activities impact the workers’ health, affecting their abilities and well-being. Between work stoppages and accidents, the company loses performance.
The Japet.W solution aims to restore the body balance in order to protect the back and free the human abilities in companies.
The lumbar impact
The Japet.W exoskeleton reduces the impact of heavy lifting, constraining postures, and repetitiveness on the back by up to 100%, thus protecting the workers from work-related accidents and the onset of lumbar musculoskeletal disorders.
By decreasing the pressure on the lumbar vertebra, 75% of the exoskeleton’s users feel an instant pain relief.
The muscular impact
By maintaining mobility, the Japet.W exoskeleton helps to maintain activity and prevent muscle loss in the lumbar area.
It also allows, during the handling of heavy objects, to reduce the muscle activity peaks that pose a risk of injury.
The exoskeleton weighs less than 2 kg.
To ensure comfort, the exoskeleton is composed of an adjustable textile belt.
Certified CE medical, the exoskeleton is validated by doctors.
Your online diagnosis
You have identified a workstation with high lumbar constraints and want to make sure the exoskeleton is a relevant solution?
Our online diagnosis allows you to check in less than 5 minutes if our exoskeleton meets your needs. By measuring the biomechanical gain and quantifying the return on investment, you will be able to evaluate the results of its integration.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the exoskeleton help carry the load?
The exoskeleton does not lighten the perceived weight of the load being carried but limits the impact of load handling, repetitive movements and awkward postures on the lumbar vertebrae. The objective is to avoid the appearance or aggravation of lumbar lesions.
How does the exoskeleton work?
The Japet exoskeleton is worn like a lumbar belt and is composed of 4 micromotors that will reduce the pressure on the spine. The movement sensors guarantee the mobility and muscular activity in the lumbar area.
How long does it take to install and uninstall the exoskeleton?
The use of the product is very simple, it takes less than a minute to equip and less than 30 seconds to de-equip.
Can I wear the exoskeleton all day?
Since muscle activity is preserved, there are no contraindications to wear the exoskeleton all day. However, we accompany you in identifying high-risk or lumbar constraint tasks to provide personalised recommendations for use. Optimal and customised use maximises adherence to the product.
