Does the Apex affect your mobility when you do movements other than heavy lifting?

Allows Full Range of Motion

In disengaged mode, the Apex does not restrict mobility; in engaged mode, the Apex will assist bending and lifting.

Due to the assistance provided by the device in engaged mode, users might feel a small amount of resistance with certain movements, such as hip flexion (e.g., climbing a ladder will be resisted slightly in engaged mode). The Apex will allow the user to turn, rotate and twist the body in an upright position without restriction in either engaged or disengaged mode.
