Innophys Co., Ltd.
Innophys Co., Ltd. (hereinafter “Innophys”) released its wearable work-assisting robotic suit "MUSCLE SUIT Every" in South Korea on February 15.
The Tokyo-based company has placed its wearable work-assisting robotic suit "MUSCLE SUIT Every" on the South Korean market as part of its overseas expansion. Innophys believes that demand for its products will continue expanding throughout the world because they are based on its mission to ensure that people lead self-reliant lives.
Innophys has deemed that it can anticipate a certain degree of demand for the product at nursing care sites as well as in manufacturing, farming and other sectors in South Korea, known as a country where a birthrate decline and population aging are progressing at the fastest pace in the world and a labor shortage is said to be serious. Innophys will collaborate with local sales agents to promote its products in the country.

About MUSCLE SUIT Every:
MUSCLE SUIT Every is a robotic suit to assist movements, such as lifting a person or a heavy item and maintaining a half-crouching position, and lighten the load on the worker’s back.
MUSCLE SUIT Every’s capacity to assist people with up to 25.5kgf of assistive force remains unchanged from its old model, and the latest model weighs only 3.8 kilograms. In Japan, the MUSCLE SUIT series has thus far sold a total of over 16,000 units including older models. (*)
The robotic suit can be used not only by corporate users at various work sites such as nursing care, farming, manufacturing, logistics and construction sites but also by individual customers at home to help them provide nursing care for their elderly family members, grow vegetables and clear snow in winter, among other scenes.
