HAPO FRONT exoskeleton


The HAPO FRONT is a light and intuitive Physical Assistance Device (exoskeleton) for use that has been designed to relieve the upper limbs, shoulders and elbows during repetitive tasks for "arms in front of you".

Start-up support (if Consulting service option chosen):

A specialized adviser supports you in integrating the exoskeleton into your activity:

- How to put on the exoskeleton, define the right settings, the tasks where it will be most useful, the tasks where it should not be used.

- Presentation of training materials (including maintenance and after-sales service) and warranty registration.


The HAPO FRONT was designed to relieve shoulders and elbows in order to reduce the risk of Musculo-Skeletal Disorders (TMS). In this sense, the HAPO FRONT is a particularly suitable solution for any work having the repetitive manipulation of objects, the prolonged maintenance of arms in front of oneself or all the postures “arm forward” impacting the members of the upper body.

For who?

Many workers are regularly forced to adopt risk postures that can cause joint degradation of elbows and shoulders. 

The HAPO FRONT can be particularly adapted to prevent the health of workers in many sectors and professions (non-exhaustive lists) 

Industry | distribution and shops | health | food industry | sort | picking


The HAPO FRONT is a reasoned solution combining continuous efficiency and freedom of movement, which allows the user to continue performing tasks that do not require mechanical assistance without being embarrassed by the exoskeleton.

The assistance of HAPO FRONT is obtained through composite spring rods that support the weight of the worker’s arms. Depending on the task, morphology and worker preferences, it is possible to choose between two levels of assistance.

Laboratory tests have shown that the HAPO FRONT integrating the blue springs reduces the load of the muscles about -15% for the shoulder and about -30% for the arm for tasks representative of the use of the exoskeleton (static hold and dynamic movement).


Assists the upper limbs: relief of the shoulders and elbows by the double interface.

Amplitude of movements with assistance: up to 135° in height and up to 180° horizontally.

2 support levels: up to 4 kg (blue springs) or 6 kg (yellow springs) of overall support for the exoskeleton.

Single size: HAPO FRONT harness and arm are adjustable to user morphologies.

Mass: 1.3 kg

Start time: 50 seconds

Time to remove it: 40 seconds

Modularity: HAPO FRONT belt and harness are similar to HAPO UP. It is therefore possible to switch from one exoskeleton model to another by replacing the FRONT modules with the UP modules and adding the booster strap on the harness.


The testers found the HAPO FRONT comfortable (difference of -12% without and with the exoskeleton). It does not disturb the user's balance. It reduces the muscular activity of the biceps and deltoids by 33% and 16% respectively for a dynamic task, arms at half height.

No negative effects observed on the main postural muscles of the upper body. These good results indicate good acceptance of the HAPO FRONT. Biomechanical evaluation study May 2021.
