Wrapping robot bionics around humans since 2005.
From our first-generation product’s like EksoVest and EksoGT to pieces of technology custom-developed for partnerships, Ekso has been at the forefront of blending human ability with robotic capabilities.
Easing the Burden: HULC.
HULC, or Human Universal Load Carrier, was a hydraulic exoskeleton designed to help soldiers in combat carry a load of up to 200 pounds at a top speed of 10 miles per hour for extended periods of time. Exclusively licensed with Lockheed Martin, this battery-powered device bore the weight of loads, dramatically diminishing the risk of musculoskeletal injuries.
HULC was our hydraulics powered exoskeleton that helped soldiers carry heavy equipment loads over long distances in combat situations. The battery-powered suit could support long time speeds of up to 10 mph. The U.S. Navy and DARPA have since used our exoskeletons for multiple programs.
Our EksoGT model, since upgraded to EksoNR, is a lower-body robot suit used in physical rehabilitation. It comfortably supports the waist, thigh, and legs and helps patients regain their range of motion and natural gait. It was originally used for stroke patients but is now used to help wearers with paralysis as well.
