We’re capping off OSC18 with an all-day session and demonstration of the latest in workplace wearable technology: exoskeletons.
Delia Treaster, BWC Ergonomic Technical Advisor, organized the session just as the the technology is beginning to gain momentum as tool for preventing workplace injuries.
“The expectation is that exoskeletons can protect workers by reducing the ergonomic hazards of physically demanding jobs, thereby allowing them to work with less fatigue and discomfort,” said Treaster in a recent blog.
Many questions remain but exoskeletons seem to have great potential for injury prevention.
One thing we know for sure is the devices are drawing a big crowd and a lot of interest at OSC this year.
