Comau unveils MATE-XT, a new version of its wearable exoskeleton that fully accommodates the specific needs of workers in demanding industrial, non-industrial and open-air environments. Featuring a slim, lightweight carbon fiber structure and an intuitive regulation system, the water, dust, UV-light and temperature resistant design can be quickly adjusted to fit virtually any body frame. MATE-XT is also highly breathable, thanks to an enhanced high-performance fabric construction specific for outdoor activities. Perfect for carpentry, construction, agriculture, assembly, logistics and more, MATE-XT replicates the user’s physiological shoulder movements to provide optimal upper body support without batteries, motors or other failure-prone devices. Moreover, it offers 8 different levels of assistance that can be quickly set – or changed – by the worker without interrupting the task at hand.
