THE GOOD NEWS: THE PRICES OF EXOSKELETONS ARE FALLING, WILL THEIR PERFORMANCE REMAIN THE SAME?
What We Can Learn from Any Facilitation of the Acceptance of these Devices by Employees?
Hardship at work did not stop with the pandemic, quite the contrary. The market for exoskeletons is exploding, especially in the booming logistics sector.

The recommendation to test different models, brand by brand, model by model is now becoming a tedious undertaking. Comparative tests that would be available on the Net would run the risk of quickly becoming obsolete.
Only ergonomic professionals who know how to source the most relevant exoskeletons, recognized for their technology but also ergonomic quality, subject matter experts who can evolve independently of any brand or manufacturer, will be the best partners for successful improvement of the worker conditions.
