Lockheed Martin Fortis Human Powered Exoskeleton
Winner - Gold
Designer: Rob Brady - CEO / Design Director
Design Type: Industrial and consumer tools and equipment
Company / Organization / School: ROBRADY design
The lightweight, ready - to - wear exoskeleton redefines the concept of the “power suit” by safely enhancing human performance. Powered by the wearer, this energy saving exo-suit literally takes a load off workers’ shoulders, redirecting the weight of heavy tools directly to the ground. A lighter load means a lower Metabolic Burn Rate (MBR) and less fatigue. With reduced fatigue, workers can safely extend their work time by a minimum factor of ten.
