Hyundai Motor Group’s Wearable Vest Exoskeleton Makes Overhead Work Easy

Here is a wearable robot designed to make life easier for industrial workers. Hyundai Motor Group’s wearable vest (VEX) is a robot that reduces the burden of overhead work. It uses multiple pivot points with multi-link muscular assistance to function, so there is no need for a battery.

At 2.5kg, VEX weighs 22-42% less than competing products and is worn like a backpack. The user places their arms through the shoulder straps of the vest, then fastens the chest and waist buckles. The back section can adjust in length by up to 18 cm to fit a variety of body sizes, while the degree of force assistance can be adjusted over six levels – up to as much as 5.5 kgf.

The Vex is expected to go into commercial production in December.
