Auberon Pneumatic Exoskeleton


Auberon Pneumatic Exoskeleton is developed with the aim of helping firefighters carry heavy firefighting equipment up multiple flights of stairs when lift systems in a high-rise building malfunction. These firefighting equipment can weigh up to 40 kilogrammes and pose considerable strain on the fireman when he has to climb up several storeys to reach a fire scene.

With Auberon, the equipment are slung across specially designed frames which help to free up the fireman’s hands as he makes his way up the building. At the same time, the muscle stress placed on the fireman, especially on the shoulders, will be reduced as the weight of the equipment will be passed through the exoskeleton and transferred to the ground via the footplate. With physical strain alleviated, it allows the fireman to focus on tackling the emergency situation more efficiently.
