Hi Guys, Philip English from RoboPhil.com and this video we are having a look at our final thoughts for the FLx Ergoskeleton!
The FLx ErgoSkeleton is a posture feedback device that provides gentle pressure to reminded you to align your torso so that when lifting a heavy load, you remain in the recommended NIOSH or OSHA lifting posture using your legs, not your back.
The device come in small, medium and large sizes and pads are on devices are adjustable to fit different types of torsos. It weighs about two to three pounds.
