Ergonomics Peer-Reviewed

Exoskeleton Technology: Making Workers Safer and More Productive

By Terry Butler

This article discusses the use of exoskeleton technology to ergonomically reduce shoulder overexertion in persons who extend and raise their arms. It presents some potential benefits and safety challenges of using such technology to simultaneously protect workers and increase productivity. The benefits presented are quantified from real-life field testing conducted at a large manufacturing facility and should help the reader understand the level of testing and research necessary to properly evaluate an exoskeleton technology before introducing it into a workplace.
