In 2021 and 2022, 71 subjects participated in total (Parcours 1: n=14; Parcours 2: n=14; Parcours 3: n=51).
The subjects were young men aged 17 to 34 years and an average age of 23 years, who were familiar with the work they had to do in the Parcours.
The experiments took place at Audi Education Lab, Neckarsulm (9.2021), Wilhelm Maybach Berufsschule Stuttgart (10.2021), Messe Duesseldorf (10.2021) and SLV Nord Hamburg (02.2022 and 09.2022).
The exoskeletons from different manufacturers were randomly assigned to the subjects to keep market neutrality and not to indicate the advantages and disadvantages of a particular system.
