Fraco Products unveiled an exoskeleton with the aim of reducing fatigue and the risk of injuries associated with handling concrete blocks on construction sites.
Fraco says the Exoskeleton unveiled at Word of Concrete is attached to several members of the human body to restore its mobility and reduce its effort.
Armand Rainville, founder of Fraco, says: “During my career as a mason, I have known so many workers who have had to leave the profession around the age of 40 because they have jeoperdise their health by manoeuvring concrete blocks. We developed the Fraco Exoskeleton with all these workers in mind. ”
The exoskeleton was developed in collaboration with Mawashi Science and Technology (St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec) and is an adaptation of the UPRISEmc exoskeleton developed by Mawashi for the military sector.
