TOKYO, March 7, 2022 – Innophys Co., Ltd. (hereinafter “Innophys”), a venture company affiliated with Tokyo University of Science, released wearable work-assisting robotic suit “MUSCLE SUIT Every” in five member countries of the European Union (EU) — Poland, Denmark and the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania — on March 1.
The move brings the number of EU nations where Innophys works to nine, as part of the company’s aim to promote sales of the “MUSCLE SUIT” series worldwide, particularly in EU member countries. Since the robotic suit received CE certification in December 2020, the company has already signed contracts with local sales representatives in France, Spain, Italy, and Sweden.
The company’s sales agents in these five nations have unique rights to sell MUSCLE SUIT Every in their respective regions, with a focus on the manufacturing and logistics sectors. The corporation is committed to expanding its operations in EU member countries.
MUSCLE SUIT Every is a work-assisting robotic suit that lightens the load on the 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 robotic suit, which weighs only 3.8 kilograms, provides up to 25.5kgf of assistive force to its user. The device can be used at various work sites, including manufacturing, farming, nursing care, logistics, and construction since its artificial muscle uses compressed air to provide assistive force without relying on electric power. By the end of April 2021, the number of products in the MUSCLE SUIT (R) series sold had surpassed 20,000 units, making it the fastest-selling (*) exoskeleton assist suit using artificial muscle in the world.
