FORTIS Exoskeleton Does the Heavy Lifting


Meet the FORTIS Exoskeleton: an innovative solution that allows the user to carry heavy loads. The FORTIS Exoskeleton is unpowered and lightweight but improves the operator’s strength and endurance by transferring the weight of heavy items directly to the ground. Where can one use something like this? In ship maintenance and other comparable fields. Lockheed Martin has been investing in exoskeleton research and development for years. These exoskeletons are simply going to get better in the future. For now, Lockheed Martin has received a contract to evaluate FORTIS Exoskeleton for the U.S. Navy.
