How to Design an Exoskeleton

An exoskeleton must be lightweight, compact, powerful, reliable, and easy to use - what could be easier? Many developers around the world dabble in this discipline with different degrees of success.

Ironhand superpower under control

Ironhand ® from the Swedish company BIOSERVOTECHNOLOGIES is a soft, active exoskeleton for the hands and fingers. Normally, a gripping action is made possible by the muscles in the lower arm and hand.

Wearable Device Preserving the Operators' Health During Assembly Operations

Comau's MATE exoskeleton was chosen by IVECO to reduce the fatigue on the upper limbs suffered by the operators engaged in the heaviest activities inside the various production departments of the company.

How do Exoskeletons Impact the Workplace?

Although some of the work in factories is automated, human input is still crucial and remains at the heart of many operations, including value-added and repetitive ones, but which require a high level of precision.

Exoskeletons and Exo-suits: Exploring the Scope of Wearable Robots

However, studies in the field of wearable robots are opening up innumerable possibilities of telepresence and telemanipulation that could change the degree and nature of functionality and productivity in humans.

Me and the Machine

Paralyzed people can learn to walk again with the aid of electromechanical exoskeletons. However, it's not easy. It takes a lot of engineering and hard training.

Hyundai Motor Group Develops Wearable Vest Exoskeleton to Alleviate Burden in Overhead Work

- New Wearable Vest EXoskeleton (VEX) is up to 42% lighter than competing products - The VEX functions without the need for a battery by imitating human shoulder joint and using multilink lift assistant module

Compact Mechatronic Drive for Robotic Applications

This document presents a new optimized integration of a compact gear reducer, specific designs of BLDC motor and magnetic absolute position sensor for high torque per volume demanding applications.

It Will Be Possible to Integrate Exoskeletons Into Clothes

A stable wheelchair is automatically heavier. The same thing applies to exoskeletons. For a wearer to move about freely for an entire day, the battery has to be very powerful. But this means that it is also large and heavy.

Exoskeleton Market to Accrue Commendable Gains via Healthcare Applications Over 2017-2024

Exoskeletons are rapidly gaining momentum across myriad geographies. The huge presence of exosuit manufacturers and escalated product demand across military & healthcare sectors are anticipated to stimulate North America exoskeleton industry outlook.

Humanizing Exoskeletons for Soldiers, Workers and Paraplegics

Combat troops, miners, fire-fighters, EMS and disaster personnel are among those who can benefit from Draper's new approach to developing exosystems.

New Exoskeleton is Revolutionizing Work Processes

The Airframe is designed like a backpack and can be adjusted to almost any body size with an adjustable frame and straps. It supports the upper extremities of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions and/or stationary arm elevation.

Getting Exoskeletons and Transporters into Every Home

We picture a reality where they have safe robots in the home to help lift heavy pots off the stove or heavy baskets off the floor, or walking robots that can carry groceries home or carry luggage.

RoboticsTomorrow.com - Q&A with Bionik Laboratories

Home-use assistive devices will first require a great deal of training and effort for the user. As a result, we thought the integration of the Amazon Echo would greatly assist this process, and facilitate ease of use as Echo also continues to improve.

Harmonic Drive Introduces New Lightweight Versions of Select Gearhead Products.

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products. The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor. Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines. With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.
