Presentation: Human-Centered Design of Exoskeletons

June 2, 2022 @ 10:40 am - 11:40 pm PDT

Human-Centered Design of Exoskeletons June 2022

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is hosting a free one-hour public session of the meeting of the Board on Human-Systems Integration. The topic of choice will be a discussion of a potential project on human-centered design principles for the development and application of powered and passive exoskeleton technology.

The discussion will look at what the future of work could look like? How can we keep improving labor-intensive activities that are known to lead to ergonomics-related worker risk for injuries?

The event will be led by Christopher Reid, HFES – Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, and Dr. William S. Marras from the Spine Research Institute, The Ohio State University for The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Board of Human Systems Integration (BOHSI). The presentation will be open to the public for virtual attendance.

Time: June 2, 2022; 10:40-11:40 AM EDT

Why this presentation could be of interest:

Both presenters have years of experience in evaluating exoskeleton technology. There is ample evidence to demonstrate that earlier design validation with test users leads to better product results. It is curious what these two experts have to say on the subject and how they envision both the future of exoskeleton technology and the integration of human evaluation earlier in the design and prototype stages.
