Features

Physically demanding work. Made easy.
Laevo. Supports you.

Evolution of robotics and automation is changing the working environment.
However, the “power” of people continues to be indispensable in maintaining production and service quality.
The concept behind LAEVO is to reuse your own energy instead of generating it in every movement.
The LAEVO reduces the strain on the shoulders, lower back, and other parts of the body when engaged in work that requires leaning forward.
Coexisting with robotics and automation is sure to result in a new type of synergy as we move toward the next generation of working environments.

Supporting work without waste or excessive effort.

Energy recovery system

The LAEVO’s source of power is the wearer’s kinetic energy.
It uses an energy recovery system. Energy is stored while bending forward which then recovers when coming up again.

The three “bones” that support the trunk.

The human body relies only on the spine for supporting the trunk, but the LAEVO provides extra support from both left and right side of the body.
The LAEVO supports the upper body and distributes the load around the spine, which leads to stable movement.
