Physically demanding work. made easy.
Laevo. Supports you.
The Laevo is a wearable back and chest support, that elevates bend-over working and stooping. It is scientifically proven that the physical strain of the back reduces by using the Laevo. For example, when performing a job at a 40-degree angle with the Laevo:
- The job can be done three times as long with the same comfort level.
- The back muscle activity reduces with 40%.
When there is less muscle activity and less pressure on the vertebra, back problems will decrease. Hereby, the productivity increases and the long-term employability of the employees improves. We aim to keep everybody who does heavy physical labour, like order picking or bedside care, healthy and employable.
“After a few intensive shifts I usually develop a nagging pain in my lower back, much like when I’m on my feet too long. With the Laevo this doesn’t happen anymore.” - Intensive care nurse Medical Centre Haaglanden (MCH).
A lifetime of healthy work with Laevo
Laevo aims to increase the long-term employability of everyone who has strain their back during work. Enabling employees to enjoy their work until the age of 67 and stay healthy much longer.
Laevo has created a wearable ‘sacro-lumbar’ support (the Laevo), that improves long-term health by decreasing the exposure to physical strain on the back. To achieve maximum acceptance the design of the Laevo focusses on ease of use. It is can be an effective addition to an employability program and the ‘circle of five’ (see text box).
Long-term employability is important. In most companies, employees are their biggest asset. When employees are happy and working without physical stress, productivity is high and absenteeism is low. Not to mention that a happy worker is more creative and involved in the company.
Prevent back problems
Back problems biggest physical cause of absenteeism. Working in a bend-forward posture is unavoidable in a lot of professions, for example during bedside care and order picking. Regular exposure to demanding postures increase the risk of back pain. This severely reduces the pleasure people have in their work. Unfortunately lower back pain is very common.
“I had to lower my work pace because of my back problems. With the Laevo I can work as fast as usually.” - Order picker Pon Logisticks ‘s Heerenberg.
Solution: The Laevo
The Laevo is a unique exoskeleton, a wearable back support that supports users while working in a bend-forward posture or lifting objects. The wearable frame carries part of the upper body weight of the user, thereby decreasing the strain on the lower back. Defining the Laevo as an innovative posture support tool that improves the long-term employability of employees. Because it is a wearable device it moves with the user between different workplaces (from bed to bed, from pallet to pallet).
What makes the Laevo unique is its patented, flexible structure. This provides support while still allowing the user to walk around and move their upper body. Aside from this physical effect there Laevo also improved awareness of the user with regards to their posture. In combination with the ‘smart hinge’, the supported user can bend all the way to the ground.
It is the combination of the reduced physical strain and increased mental awareness that provides such an improvement to both the long-term employability and the enjoyment of the user.
- The Laevo is easy to put on, just like a jacket.
- The chest pads are designed in such a way that their pressure is comfortable, even after a full day’s work.
- The flexible structure moves with the body. Allowing sideways lifting and short walks and providing a spring force while bending.
- The hip pad supports the pelvis and results in a natural posture of the lower back.
- Comfortable leg pads fit the upper legs.
- The Laevo parts are available in different sizes, allowing for a custom fit Laevo, personalized specifically to the body and job requirements of the user.
