A leader in robotic exoskeleton technology is showcasing fully connected, AI-powered wearables to protect and empower today’s physical workforce.
LAS VEGAS, January 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — German Bionic is announcing at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2023 new, AI-powered smart wearables that are revolutionizing workplace safety in physically demanding jobs. making work safer, less stressful and more engaging. New smart wearables include:
Apogee(TM). the lightest and most versatile AI powered suit from Germany’s Bionic
Smart SafetyVest(TM). smart vest to provide ergonomic monitoring and protection for each worker
German Bionic IO (TM). a cloud-based software platform that intelligently manages and analyzes workplace ergonomics and safety practices
Also available for display and demonstration will be the CES 2023 “Best Innovation” (Wearable Technologies) award-winning Cray X exoskeleton, which is already widely trusted by L’Oreal, JBS, Ecolab and Lanxess, as well as many global logistics companies including DPD as well as airports and retailers such as leading UK consumer electronics chain Currys. CES visitors will find German Bionic at booth 7141 (Tech East, West Hall), January 5-8in 2023

Apogee. A smart robotic exoskeleton for the workplace
The stunningly designed, AI-powered Apogee is the next-generation smart robotic wearable from Germany’s Bionic. It is even lighter and more comfortable than its predecessors and expands the fields of application. The dust- and water-resistant device maximizes workplace safety by providing lower back support for lifting movements up to 66 pounds (30 kg) and helps minimize fatigue with active walking assistance. Apogee integrates easily into workplaces and makes an immediate impact anywhere workloads are regularly handled, such as logistics, construction and care.
Smart SafetyVest. Ergonomic protection made simple for everyone
German Bionic’s Smart SafetyVest incorporates advanced sensing capabilities and artificial intelligence power to provide data-driven, personalized ergonomic insights as well as assessments and recommended actions at the push of a button. In addition to conventional workplace insights, it can identify ergonomic risks and opportunities for improvement to reduce fatigue and injuries that might otherwise lead to high rates of illness and absenteeism, regardless of the type of work performed.
German Bionic IO. the premier ergonomic data platform for the workplace
At the heart of the two innovations announced at CES 2023 is Germany’s innovative cloud-based Bionic IO platform. It not only makes occupational health and safety measurable, but also visible. The system intelligently analyzes data collected from Apogee, Cray X and Smart SafetyVest, applying machine learning and AI to continuously learn and improve safety performance with every movement of the wearer. Discover risks, trends and process optimizations tailored to your environment and devices. With the ergonomics Smart Safety Companion early warning system that alerts, for example, to bad posture, incorrect lifting and excessive strain, the German Bionic IO platform provides comprehensive monitoring and reporting functions as well as personalized action recommendations based on real, relevant data. .
“With our new wearables, we’re empowering hard-working people with the tools they need to do their jobs more safely and sustainably. Both our new ergonomic wearables, the Apogee and Smart SafetyVest, and our award-winning Cray X exoskeleton enable us. to provide the right support for almost any company or work environment where manual work is done. And with the German Bionic IO data platform, we also provide a powerful analytics tool for workplace ergonomics and processes,” says. Norma StellerCPO of German Bionic.
Win the battle against labor shortages and musculoskeletal disorders with smart wearables
Industries and critical infrastructure businesses that rely on manual labor are facing severe labor shortages, which become more difficult as workers age or fall out of the workforce on a temporary or permanent basis due to injuries. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), in particular, affect an estimated 1.71 billion people worldwide and are the leading contributors to disability worldwide, with back pain being the single largest cause. Repetitive strain is an activity that places significant strain on the musculoskeletal system, which can lead to the development of MSDs.
The US Institute of Medicine estimates the economic burden of workplace MSDs as measured by absenteeism, compensation costs, lost wages, and lost productivity. 45 USD – 54 billion annually in the USA alone. And as the population continues to age, those numbers will increase.
Exoskeletons and smart wearables such as Germany’s Bionic Apogee and Smart SafetyVest are important technologies that can make a significant, quantifiable contribution to preventing this. They are a true revolution in workplace safety in physically demanding jobs, making work safer, less stressful and therefore more attractive for incumbents and applicants, while increasing productivity.
“Our smart power suits and wearables protect people who do heavy physical work every day in system-critical jobs from overexertion and injury. They provide mechanical support for lifting and carrying and use an intelligent assistance system to alert users, e.g. “Instances of incorrect lifting or when they should take a break. This results in less time off work due to illness due to overwork or accidents, which not only makes for happier workers but also more productive workers,” he says. Armin G. Schmidt:, CEO and co-founder of Germany’s Bionic. “We see this as a benefit to society as a whole, and we hope to build on that with our technology.”
The new generation of German Bionic smart wearables, including the Apogee power suit, the Smart SafetyVest and the German Bionic IO platform, can be seen and experienced for the first time alongside the German Bionic Cray X, winner of the CES 2023 “Best Innovation” award. industrial exoskeleton, January 5-8, 2023 at CES Las Vegasbooth 7141 (Tech East, West Hall).
