Introducing the Next Ironman

Sellen is the first contractor in the nation to partner with Ekso Bionics, the creator of a prototype exo-skeleton vest. With the use of gas springs, the vest is designed to lessen arm fatigue or strain for workers who spend a lot of time with their hands at chest level or higher.

As part of our partnership, we provided a real-world testing environment and asked workers at the Stratus residential tower project to wear the vest and provide feedback. In addition to validating the vest in a construction setting, the Sellen-Ekso team identified refinements for the second prototype. The vest became much lighter and was created with more breathable materials.

Using the exo-skeleton vest lessens arm fatigue in workers, reducing potential injuries and increasing worker efficiency.

The exo-skeleton vest will be commercially available shortly. Ekso Bionics and Sellen continue to partner together to improve the product and will soon begin a long-term usage study of the new vest.
