About Exoworkathlon®

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


Past Events:

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

Our offer for you

For manufacturers and distributors of exoskeletons

  • to test your device in standardized conditions or the field (see more here)
  • to support you with Exoworkathlon test benches for your application of interest
  • to guide you through the global Exo-User-Survey to get subjective user feedback during the exoskeleton testing phases

For end-user industries and insurance

  • to create exoskeleton study trials at locations of interest
  • to neutrally evaluate exoskeletons as an ergonomic device for your application

Please get in touch with us.

„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.”










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










Auxivo AG

"The Exoworkathlon 2023 and WeaRAcon Europe were fantastic, well-organized, and unique events that brought together many stakeholders from the exoskeleton field. For us, as a developer and manufacturer of exoskeletons, the Exopark at the A&A fair, in particular, offered a great opportunity to connect with potential customers and partners."
