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.
