Static Load: What is it and why is it a problem?

Static strain occurs when muscles have to maintain the same position for an extended period of time, which often occurs when lifting and carrying loads. This can lead to fatigue, pain and even long-term damage to the musculoskeletal system. The risks of static loading are significant, especially in workplaces where heavy lifting is a daily activity.

How Darwingback reduces static load

Darwingback is designed to function as an extension of the body, distributing the force required for lifting over a larger part of the body. This reduces the pressure on individual muscle groups, especially in the back, shoulders and arms, and thus significantly reduces the static load during lifting. Construction is an example of a sector that involves a lot of lifting. Exoskeletons can therefore be of great value in construction to relieve staff and prevent wear and tear in the body.

How many kilos are you allowed to lift at work?

Current standards and guidelines for lifting at work vary, but the general advice is that workers should handle no more than 23 kilos for incidental lifting. Darwingback supports employees in safely handling loads within these standards, by reducing the required physical effort and minimizing the risk of overload.
