About Laevo BV
Laevo has designed a passive (no batteries needed) back support exoskeleton, that will help the worker to fight fatiguing and stress during physically demanding jobs.
Laevo evolves form a grant project, started by InteSpring BV in December 2009; “The development of an exoskeleton for supporting the upper body during lifting in health care”. At the end of 2013, the project was completed and the exoskeleton for working in a bent-over position was a fact.
Laevo aims to improve workplace health and workplace productivity by providing exoskeleton support solutions. Employees who are generally healthy, fit and resilient are less likely to suffer from physical and mental illness. Good mental and physical health impacts well-being, which in turn supports productivity, resulting in a competitive advantage for employers. Retaining and returning employees can reduce the burden of disability costs as well as aged care costs.
Laevo was founded in 2013 and is based in Delft, The Netherlands. Laevo is continuously increasing its presence worldwide.
