Suited for All
Exoskeleton Equality Starts Now
Women Lift Every Day
Women make up just over 50 percent of the workforce. Every day they are hauling, lifting, bending, reaching, pushing, and pulling more than their weight around the globe. Any exosuit that intends to fit an entire workforce must fit women. Which is exactly what the HeroWear Apex does.
For women, unisex exosuits and exoskeletons often don’t meet their human standard: comfort. To be a true exo for all, an exosuit must be customizable, wearable, and comfortable. The Apex meets those criteria with a thoughtful, modular design factoring the key variables necessary for a custom fit. For women and for men.
Working women worldwide are ready for the change. Now, the weight is over.
Progressive Design for Working Women
It’s a fact that the average women's body is physiologically different from the average man's. The Apex introduces exoskeleton design that was engineered from day one specifically to be comfortable for women by conforming to components of their frame. These include:
The design of the Apex's straps differs for women. By changing the curvilinear shape the Apex fits better for women, who in general have narrower shoulders, a shorter torso and need a more dynamic curve to allow space for the bust. We are able to offer the option thanks to the modular design.
Occupational exoskeletons with chest plates and rigid torso structures can compress very sensitive tissues for women. The Apex resolves this with an open-front design.
On average, women have a greater Q-angle (between the pelvis and thighs) than men. The Apex offers a greater variety of motion than any other exoskeleton device, allowing women to move more naturally.
Ask any woman where she sweats first, or where she sweats the most, and she will often point to her chest. The lightweight, open design of the Apex allows the body to breathe and sweat without discomfort.
