A Robotic Ski XO
A Robotic Ski XO
The ELEVATE robotic ski XO boosts your quad strength giving you more control, stronger turns and longer runs while reducing muscle fatigue and joint pressure.
Sensors and smart software on the exoskeleton anticipate user intent and automatically adjust torque at the knee via air actuators, effectively mimicking and strengthening the quadricep muscles. The device is fully adjustable but always follows the body’s lead, so the user is in always control.
Left & Right Exoskeletons (XOs)
Shoulder mounted hand controller
Our air actuator offloads up to 30% the user's body weight, significantly reducing pressure on quads and knees. Even better, it doubles as a soft shock absorber by providing cushioning during turns, bends and impact. And it's smart, meaning it only engages when needed so it doesn’t get in the way while skiing.
Autonomously synchronizes smoothly with your own movements.
Compliant air actuator provides force seamlessly (no sudden jerks).
The exoskeleton is designed to improve knee stability and protect the knee from normal wear and tear by letting the loads by pass the knee.
Lightweight & comfortable for all-day use
The powerpack is designed for maximum comfort so that it doesn't interfere with your skiing. Even better, it still functions as a backpack--fill it with water and snacks for out on the slopes (as you'll be out there even longer, now).
The controller is wired to the Power Pack so you won't lose it, the remote gives you easy device control within arm's reach, even as you ski.
Step 1: Connect the knee brace to the boot using the provided attachment.
Step 2: Tighten straps.
Step 3: Plug in connections to the power pack and you are ready to go.
