"Our mission is to help realize a Power Barrier-less Society by offering a helping hand during manual labor and at other worksites" said Hiromichi Fujimoto, President of Activelink Co., Ltd. AWN-03 The AWN-03 was especially developed to provide lower back support. It automatically senses the user's motion when lifting and holding heavy objects, and sends a signal to the motors to rotate the gears. It also raises the user's upper body while pushing on their thighs, and as a result reduces stress on the user's lower back by 15kg. PLN-01 By mimicking human motion, the PLN-01 named "Ninja" assists the user's motion while walking and running, for instance hiking up steep mountain paths during afforestation. An upper body unit of the "Ninja" is currently being developed, which will help lift and carry heavy items. Power Loader The Power Loader is a powerful suit that can be used during disaster relief, construction, and public works.
