About Ironhand®

Bioservo’s soft robotic muscle strengthening system Ironhand® comprises a lightweight glove with a portable power pack worn like a backpack. Ironhand® can add up to 80 N to the wearer’s grip within milliseconds. In addition to that, it is equipped with smart data capabilities which makes it possible to digitalize ergonomic risk assessment as well as provide an adaptive performance to the operator over time. At the same time as it supports the wearer, it collects and analyzes data making it possible to evaluate and identify grip intense use cases that run a high ergonomic risk. The wearer is in full control of the system which helps to create a healthy and sustainable work environment.
