Invitation to join the Webinar on Industrial Exoskeletons: Potential impact and barriers hindering adoption

Worldwide efforts have led to a variety of exoskeleton devices aiming to support workers in heavy work (in construction, manufacturing, maintenance and more). These range from back-, arm-, hand- and leg-support exoskeletons, as well as from spring-based ones to sensorized and actuated ones.
Some are finding their way into practice. But exoskeletons are not yet used on a wide scale. Why is that? What are the barriers to overcome this?
In this webinar, Prof. Michiel de Looze of TNO will explore state-of-the-art industrial exoskeletons and address their potential power to reduce workload. He will discuss the barriers that may stand in the way of their acceptance, including aspects like usability, discomfort, and costs, based on practical examples.
Following his presentation, InnovationQuarter will introduce the new EXSKALLERATE project, which aims to increase the adoption of exoskeletons by the manufacturing and building industry.
