Robotic Exoskeletons Make Their Way Into The Workspace, Allow Elderly to do Challenging Jobs
With characteristics nostalgic of MechWarrior or the Matrix, robotic exoskeletons are on their way to help people do difficult tasks. Utilizing this advanced technology Panasonic hopes to allow elderly individuals and those with physical ailments to be able to do jobs otherwise improbable.
Panasonic USA published that “The Exoskeleton is an exterior robotic suit that can help factory workers lift over 650 pounds. It will help to remove physical limitations for workers and create a barrier-free society.”
Al Jezeera reports that “the exoskeleton helps employees to carry out their jobs, which include constantly loading, unloading, carrying and bending.”
