Don’t accept back injuries as the cost of doing business.

How It Works

Put simply, the Apex 2 works like an extra set of back muscles.

Elastic bands stretch as your muscles extend during movements, then recoil as your muscles contract, returning energy and assisting with every bending motion. The bands comfortably move with the user and reduce forces on the spinal muscles and discs each time the wearer bends forward or squats down – all with no motors or batteries.



The Apex 2 reduces muscle fatigue and strain by 40% and takes off 100 lbs of back strain with every lift. It’s engineered with abrasion-resistant fabrics, engineering-grade polymers, and aircraft-grade aluminum, so the suit will hold up to the most rigorous environments.


The Apex 2 improves on the already best-in-class modular design of the Apex 1 to comfortably fit an even broader range of people. And the new design dramatically decreases heat retention — making it better suited for all-day use in a wider range of applications.

Ease of Use

The Apex 2’s slim and flexible design moves with a user’s body naturally – giving you the freedom to maneuver through a wide range of tasks and even in tight spaces. Along with an on/off switch that gives you assistance only when you need it, the Apex 2 is practical for fast-paced work in many industries.

How Does the Apex Provide a Return on Investment?

  • Reduces risk of injuries: Musculoskeletal disorders lead to high medical costs and impact quality of life for the worker
  • Reduces absenteeism: Keeps hard-working men and women ready to work and supporting their families
  • Reduces fatigue: Fresher and happier workers means better productivity
  • Improves culture: Retaining workers and reducing turnover
