SPOTLIGHT > HeroWear Apex 2: The latest version of HeroWear’s back-assist exosuit helps warehouse workers perform movements such as lifting and sustained or repeated bending. The Apex 2 weighs less than 3 pounds and can take 75 pounds of strain off a typical worker’s back with every lift. It reduces muscle strain and fatigue by up to 40% without motors or batteries, reducing the risk of back injury without restricting freedom of movement. [ IN FOCUS ] Safety and Ergonomics

> Yale Reliant Operator Assistance: The operator assistance solution—now available on 18 Yale lift truck models— uses multiple detection technologies to monitor the surrounding environment and the status of the lift truck and load, and implements automatic performance controls. Yale Reliant provides warnings and assists with operator awareness by proactively reducing truck speed if it detects pedestrians, other trucks, or obstacles in the monitored area.

> Treston Quick Edge Workstation: This industrial workstation lets operators adjust the desk’s height according to the needs of the application and to workers’ standing heights. Pictured is the workstation above a conveyor line. Treston also recently released a lifting

platform on which workers can stand to further adapt the working height to the requirements of employees, the task, or the items being processed.
