About us

NHLO employs patented phantomspring® technology to create a constant force. When this force is used to counteract gravity, it makes objects seemingly weightless, for example in order to reduce the physical workload of manual lifting activities, without losing time. Or to provide motion compensation at sea. In the video above we explain the working principle and some of its possible applications.
