About Exoworkathlon®

Industrial exoskeletons are fascinating new devices developed and used to facilitate work functions and prevent musculoskeletal diseases. They may even improve the work output quality in some cases.

EXOWORKATHLON® develops work-specific Parcours for industrial exoskeletons to demonstrate and discuss their functions related to user feedback, ergonomics, metabolic, and production quality. We seek to generate a critically high level of standardized data collection in close collaboration with our expert partners.

EXOWORKATHLON® wants to assess, show and discuss!

You can find detailed information about the background and methodology in the article "Exoworkathlon: A prospective study approach for the evaluation of industrial exoskeletons" by Kopp et al., 2022.


Last Events:

  • Exoworkathlon® at Wearracon Europe, during A+A Show, Exoskeleton Park, Self Experience Space, 24.-27. October 2023, Duesseldorf

Shown are the first work scenarios. Further Parcours have already been developed or are currently under development.



„Due to A+A and Exoworkathlon trials in 2021, we at Ford Europe, decided to check new exoskeletons models at our reference plant in Valencia and are now successfully long-term testing them.”


Israel Benavides,
Program Ergonomics, Ford Europe


„A+A and Exoworkathlon are important multiplyers for exoskeletons. We love to be there again in October 2023.”
