Rhino Assembly is a well-known partner to the local automotive industry with over 30 years’ experience and therefore a great partner for Bioservo in the US. Rhino Assembly works with customers like Ford, BMW USA, Boeing, Caterpillar and many others in the automotive, aerospace, agriculture and general industry manufacturing sectors.

Petter Bäckgren, CEO Bioservo, commented: "We are delighted to add Rhino Assembly to our global partner network as we are establishing distribution throughout Europe and the US. We now enter into agreements with experienced organizations that with the help of their vast networks will be great partners when marketing the all-new Ironhand® on their respective markets.”

Dan Brooks, CEO Rhino Assembly, commented: “It is the mission of Rhino Assembly to assist customers with ergonomics and productivity in the workplace.  With the addition of Bioservo’s Ironhand®, we have a solution to alleviate worker fatigue and injury without replacing human input from the process.”

Discussions are ongoing with distributors for additional markets and additional agreements are expected during 2019.

About Ironhand®

Bioservo’s soft robotic muscle strengthening system Ironhand® comprises a lightweight glove with a portable power pack worn like a backpack. Ironhand® can add up to 80 N to the wearer’s grip within milliseconds. In addition to that, it is equipped with smart data capabilities which makes it possible to digitalize ergonomic risk assessment as well as provide an adaptive performance to the operator over time. At the same time as it supports the wearer, it collects and analyzes data making it possible to evaluate and identify grip intense use cases that run a high ergonomic risk. The wearer is in full control of the system which helps to create a healthy and sustainable work environment.
