Sarcos Robotics Named a Finalist for Guardian XO Full-Body Industrial Exoskeleton


Reading time ( words)

Sarcos Robotics, a global leader in the production of robots that augment humans to enhance productivity and safety, announced that its Guardian® XO® industrial exoskeleton—the world’s first full-body, battery-powered wearable industrial robot designed to increase strength and endurance—has been recognized by Fast Company in their 2020 Innovation by Design Awards. The Guardian XO robot was named a Finalist in the Products category and received Honorable Mention in the General Excellence category.

The awards recognize people, teams, and companies solving problems through design. One of the most sought-after design awards in the industry, Innovation by Design, is the only competition to honor creative work at the intersection of design, business, and innovation.

The Guardian XO exoskeleton, which has been under development for more than 20 years, can safely lift up to 200 pounds for extended work sessions and is applicable to a variety of industries such as aviation, manufacturing, warehousing and logistics, oil & gas, construction, defense, and others. It will be commercially available in 2021.

“The design and development of our Guardian XO industrial exoskeleton, the world’s first full-body, powered exoskeleton, has taken more than 20 years and is finally ready for commercialization,” said Ben Wolff, chairman and CEO, Sarcos Robotics. “We believe the Guardian XO robot can have a profound effect on the labor force both in the U.S. and globally, reducing the impact of workplace injuries and addressing the growing shortage of skilled labor.”
