White Paper: Hip Exoskeleton Market – Review of Lift Assist Wearables
Published: March 2018
Wearable robotic systems will assist workers to lift heavy objects, palletize, and perform tasks with less fatigue. The growing field is expanding from military and rehabilitation systems to the industrial and manufacturing workspace. From industry, we are learning that there is a limited pool of younger workers combined with an older, aging workforce. Industry wants to improve the ergonomics and prevent injuries in the workforce reducing health-care costs. The goal is to “Improve the Quality of Work.” For example, work related postures may lead to musculoskeletal problems such as low back pain. This white paper will focus on hip exoskeletons that assist lifting/holding objects and moving them around. Click here to read the report.
