Watch our New video on i-Botics Exoskeleton Research

Despite the ongoing robotization of manual labor, physically demanding work is still prevalent in industry. A significant part of the EU workforce is exposed to tiring or painful positions, carrying or moving heavy loads, and repetitive hand or arm movements. These exposures relate to increased risks for developing musculoskeletal disorders in various body regions. How can exoskeletons help to support heavy work? How does an exoskeleton know at which moment it should activate? Can it differentiate between gently shaking hands to greet someone, or lift a heavy load? These are the type of questions we aim to answer in our research on exoskeletons within the i-Botics project.
