"Muscle Suit® Every" by INNOPHYS CO., LTD

“Muscle Suit® Every” by INNOPHYS CO., LTD is a lightweight exoskeleton suit made with BASF’s Ultramid® polyamide. Exoskeleton suits provide support and protection for workers in various fields such as manufacturing, logistics, agriculture, and nursing care. Worldwide, more than 540 million people are suffering from back pain.


Ultramid®  and Polyamide (PA) enable benefits such as lightweight which leads to a reduction of weight in the exoskeleton suit, which not only improves the user experience, but also eases strain on users. Another material benefit is the cost efficiency which helps achieve cost targets with injection molding processes, multiple components redesigned into a single component and a simplified assembly process with an optimization of production costs. Additionally, BASF's high-performance material solution Ultramid® is recyclable and with that environmentally friendly.
