Ostensibly, the suitX MAX looks like something out of a futuristic science-fiction film -- a powerful mechanic suit that increases one's strength and agility. In reality, the suitX MAX isn't far off from that imagining, although the tool's purpose is somewhat more pragmatic in scope. The suitX MAX is an exoskeleton designed to help reduce pain and injury and increase comfort for manual laborers.

MAX, which stands for "Modular Agile Exoskeleton," is a modernized three-piece suit. It consists of the backX, the legX and the shoulderX, which can be used individually for specific tasks or combined for more general labor.

As the suitX MAX founder says, it is "not Ironman... These aren't fancy devices." Rather, they are a practical, mechanic way to reduce worker overexertion.
