World’s first soft robotic muscle strengthening system. Developed in collaboration with leading Fortune 500 companies
World's first soft robotic muscle strengthening system. Human-centric support for the factory floor is the future.
Based on our SEM™ (Soft Extra Muscle) technology Ironhand strengthens the worker’s grip and supports potential lack of endurance. On the manufacturing floor, in the construction industry or in warehousing, there are still plenty of grip intense tasks that need to be handled manually. A lightweight glove with a portable unit, where the wearer is in full control provides superior results and helps to keep workers healthy and efficient. At the same time as it supports the wearer, it collects and analyzes data making it possible to assess and identify grip intense use cases that run a high ergonomic risk.
Ironhand is a modular system consisting of a glove, covering all five fingers and a power unit, worn like a backpack. The glove is equipped with pressure sensors that trigger the servo motors placed in the unit. These motors provide the wearer with an extra powerful grip. The grip can be easily adjusted to the task at hand providing endless configuration possibilities. In addition to the added power and endurance Ironhand is equipped with data capabilities making it possible to run digitalized risk assessment as well as integrate the human into the Industry 4.0 / Factory of the Future concept.
The Ironhand glove is available in four sizes for the left and right hand. A normal working glove should be worn on top of the Ironhand glove to be compliant with all relevant health and safety regulations.
