Meet the shieldX: a wearable exoskeleton for healthcare personnel that need to wear heavy anti-radiation aprons. It removes the weight to reduce stress from the user’s shoulders and spine. Here is how it works.
shieldX eliminates spinal loading by transferring the entire apron weight from the shoulders to the buttocks and hips.shieldX incorporates adjustable height, fitting up to 6’3″ tall users. It has a flexible hip frame that conforms to 28″-60″ waist. Additionally, shieldX has removable textile for hygiene. With no training needed, shieldX can be put on and taken off in less than 10 seconds.
A fan is available to cool the user’s back, neck, and upper arms.
