2018 ErgoX Symposium: Exoskeletons in the Workplace Assessing Safety, Usability, & Productivity

Join researchers, designers, and users as they share practical, usable, and evidence-based solutions to address the
challenges in military, medical, and industrial domains

The ErgoX Symposium will
• Provide you with an update on human factors, safety, and ergonomics research methods for exoskeletons
• Highlight standards and technology on exoskeletons
• Bring you up-to-date about exoskeleton types and applications, and their potential to reduce injuries and improve human performance

Learn about approaches to the design of human factors research on exoskeletons to appropriately assess fit, usability, safety, ergonomics, work productivity and quality, and cost-effectiveness.

See demos of exoskeletons for different industries

Listen to candid evaluations, methods, expectations, and findings
