Equipois Inc. has been awarded a 2011 Technology Innovation Award from the Wall Street Journal. The company won the award in the manufacturing technology category for its zeroG mechanical-arm technology.

“The Wall Street Journal’s Innovation Award is one of the highest honors that a technology company can receive,” said Eric Golden, Equipois CEO. “This recognition is a testament to the vast potential that the emerging field of exoskeletal technology offers – the ability to augment human brains, skills and talent with the stamina, safety and precision of machines.”

Equipois’s zeroG technology is a mechanical exoskeletal arm that enables workers to maneuver tools and other objects as if weightless, with unmatched freedom of motion. As a result, companies can significantly reduce workplace injuries and increase quality and productivity, with annual returns on investment that can reach 200 to 500 percent. Many of the world’s top companies in aerospace, automotive, heavy machinery and other manufacturing industries have adopted zeroG as a new best practice.
