Levitate in the News

Levitate Technologies is a small tech start-up that began with the goal of building human augmentation to help surgeons and medical professionals. Today, Levitate has successfully designed the AIRFRAME. It is a wearable, lightweight technology engineered to improve upper extremity musculoskeletal health in professionals and skilled trade workers who engage in repetitive arm motion and/or static elevation of the arms. This one-of-a-kind technology has been creating a buzz in the manufacturing industry since it hit the market. Check out these articles about the Levitate AIRFRAME technology!

The AIRFRAME exoskeleton makes light of hard work

 

The Levitate AIRFRAME transfers the weight of the arms from the shoulders, neck and upper back to the outside of the hips, evenly distributing energy to reduce stress. It slips easily on and off and moves seamlessly with the wearer without intruding into the workspace or limiting motion or dexterity. The AIRFRAME’s mechanical support system progressively activates as the arm is lowered, resulting in just the right level of support – at just the right time. It’s personalized to fit each wearer, so they can use their arms as normal while enjoying reduced fatigue and comfort they never thought possible.
