The Exoweste ™ is a partly flexible, partly rigid construction that shifts the weight and tensile force of a steadicam system to areas on the body that do not interfere with the natural movements of the skeleton. Weight 4.85 kg Steadicam Exovest ™ designed by Chris Fawcett The Steadicam Fawcett Exovest ™ is a semi-rigid exoskeleton vest that transfers the weight and torque of the support of a steadicam system to anatomically suitable areas without impairing natural movements. The primary weight transfer takes place via four ergonomically placed pads on the pelvis, and the primary torque transfer occurs via a cushioning system on the upper back. Lower pads prevent the abdomen in front and the base of the spine from being squeezed together at the back. The upper pads prevent the neck, shoulder joint, shoulder blades and spine from being compressed. It is crucial that the lack of chest straps allows unrestricted breathing and arm movement. The upholstery systems are connected to one another by rigid sliding components and are tensioned with double and triple purchase straps to ensure a precise fit under load. In this way, the load-bearing properties can be adjusted in no time. The exemplary rigidity of the outer structure extends the torque-resistant lever arm from the center of the backrest (if vests are present) to the height of the high shoulder, which halves the force required to counterbalance a Steadicam gear. Symmetrical twin-rod bars that rise from the waistband to the front and back increase the vertical reach of the pan block and uniquely allow for front and rear arm assembly. Four integrated pivot points allow the vest to be adjusted to natural body movements. The raising and lowering of the hips when the weight is shifted from one leg to the other is taken up by a lower pivot system so that the socket block stays at the same height and at the same height when walking, resulting in less muscle strain and better overall stability and balance. The upper system allows the shoulders to move freely. The resulting feeling is increased ease and control. Between takes, the entire vest can be relaxed with a lever in the middle, as the upper padding system only engages under load.

Product Highlights

• Vest for Archer, M-1, Shadow & Ultra2
• For Right-Handed Operators
• Pivoting Exoskeletal Structure
• Ergonomic Weight Transfer


The Fawcett Exovest with large Socket Block for right-handed operators from Steadicam is a semi-rigid exoskeletal vest designed to transfer the weight and torque of your Steadicam camera support system to anatomically appropriate areas without interfering with natural movement. Primary weight transfer is to the pelvis via four pads ergonomically placed around the waistband, and primary torque transfer is via a pad system at the upper back. Lower pads on the front and back avoid compressing the abdomen and the base of the spine. Upper pads avoid compressing the neck, shoulder joint, shoulder blades, and spine.

Crucially, the absence of chest straps allows for unrestricted breathing and arm movement. Pad systems are connected by rigid sliding components, and tightened by double- and triple-purchase straps for precise fit under load, so weight-bearing characteristics can be fine-tuned on the fly. The rigidity of the outer structure extends the torque-resisting lever-arm to high-shoulder level, halving the force required to counterbalance a Steadicam rig.

Symmetrical twin-rod spars rising from the waistband on the front and back increase the vertical range of the socket block and permit both front and rear arm mounting. Four integral pivots allow the vest to conform to natural body movements. The rise and fall of the hips as weight is shifted from one leg to the other is accommodated by a lower pivot system, so the socket block remains level and at the same height when walking. This results in less muscular strain and better overall stability and balance.

The Exovest's upper system allows for free movement of the shoulders, giving a feel of increased lightness and control. Between takes, the entire vest may be relaxed by means of one over-center lever, as the upper pad system beds in only under load.

Description:

The Steadicam Fawcett Exovest™ is a semi-rigid exoskeletal vest that transfers the weight and torque of supporting a Steadicam system into anatomically appropriate areas, without interfering with natural movement.

Primary weight transfer is to the pelvis via four pads ergonomically placed around the waistband, and primary torque transfer is via a pad system at the upper back. Lower pads avoid compressing the abdomen in front, and the base of the spine in back. Upper pads avoid compressing the neck, shoulder joint, shoulder blades, and spine. Crucially, the absence of chest straps allows for unrestricted breathing and arm movement.

Pad systems are connected by rigid sliding components, and tightened by double and triple-purchase straps for precise fit under load, so weight-bearing characteristics can be fine-tuned on the fly.

The exemplary rigidity of the outer structure extends the torque-resisting lever-arm from mid-back (on existing vests) to high-shoulder level—halving the force required to counterbalance a Steadicam rig.

Symmetrical twin-rod spars, rising fore and aft from the waistband, increase vertical range of the socket block and uniquely, permit both front and rear arm mounting.

Four integral pivots allow the vest to conform to natural body movements. The rise and fall of the hips as weight is shifted from one leg to the other is accommodated by a lower pivot system, so the socket block remains level, and at the same height when walking—resulting in less muscular strain, and better overall stability and balance. The upper system allows free movement of the shoulders.

The resultant feel is of increased lightness and control. Between takes, the entire vest may be relaxed by means of one over-center lever, as the upper pad system beds in only under load.
