InnophysMuscleSuit400x275Innophys Co. Ltd. has announced it will release the wearable, work-assisting robot suit known as “MUSCLE SUIT Every” to Italy as part of its efforts to promote sales of the product overseas, particularly in European Union member countries.

The Muscle Suit Every is a work-assisting robot that lightens the load on a user’s back when the user performs hard work, such as maintaining a half-crouching position and lifting up a heavy item or person. The powered exoskeleton, which weighs only 3.8 kg, provides up to 25.5 kgf of assistive force to its user. The device can be used at worksites ranging from manufacturing, farming, nursing care, logistics and construction since its artificial muscle uses compressed air to provide assistive force without relying on electric power.

The company said that by the end of April 2021, it has sold more than 20,000 units of the Muscle Suit Every. Italy is the third EU member country Innophys has marketed to product to, following France and Spain, where it entered into contracts with local distribution partners following CE certification in December 2020.

The Tokyo-based company has partnered with a local distribution partner in Italy due to “strong local demand for the robotic suit.” The company said it also intends to find sales agents in the region, particularly Germany and Poland.
