Webinar: Back-Assist Exosuits
December 16, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 pm PST
The Wearable Robotics Association (WearRA) is proud to host a new webinar this December 16, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. (Pacific Time) titled: Past, Present, and Future of Back-Assist Exosuits. The webinar will be hosted by two outspoken key figures in the exoskeleton industry, Dr. Karl Zelik, and Matt Marino:
“Exosuits represent the ultimate in wearable technology, and include some of the most innovative products being developed today. But, unknown to many, they also have a long history. Like everything else, we can learn a lot by studying the history and present state to know where the future is headed. Attendees will hear from Dr. Karl Zelik, CSO and Matt Marino, Director of Ergonomics and Human Factors, HeroWear as they discuss the past, present, and future of back-assist exosuits.”
The Exoskeleton Report team does not have a preview of the slides that will be used during the webinar, but we are familiar with the work of both presenters, and you might be too. Dr. Karl Zelik worked with our team on an article for Forbes online on exoskeletons and exosuits not being associated with any muscle degeneration. In addition to his many publications, he is also active on social media and often engages in technical discussions. The second presenter, Matt Marino, has multiple years of experience applying wearable devices at the workplace on an as-needed basis. In addition to his work and many related committees, he is also a founding member of the ASTM Exo Technology Center of Excellence. Given their years of past experience and involvement in communicating the potential impact of exoskeletons and exosuits for occupational applications, the upcoming webinar is bound to be interesting.
As the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the globe, webinars and online presentations are now the premier method to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in wearable robotics and exosuit technology.
