The 'EksoVest' has been created with overhead assembly line workers in mind to provide them with a supportive piece of equipment that will help to reduce the instance of fatigue and potentially even injury. This is achieved by having the unit be worn on the body and offer support as they work under vehicles or other machinery. Users will experience five to 15 pounds of lift assistance, which will come in hand when applying fastener rivets or doing other tasks repetitively.
The 'EksoVest' has been unveiled as part of a partnership with Ford to identify the capabilities of the equipment when it comes to those who work in factories to implement bionic support whenever desired or required.
