On June 1 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm CET, Fraunhofer IPA, the German Federal Association for Safety and Health at Work (Basi) and Messe Düsseldorf (organizer of the A+A trade fair) will jointly present the web session “Industrial Exoskeletons: Ergonomic Advantages for Future Work”.
The event will provide valuable insights from different perspectives: science and research, industry and end-users will present the wide variety as well as the opportunities for industry in the future.
In this web session, sponsored by the company Ottobock, key players from the industry will provide information on current developments and present the latest study results on different usage scenarios for industrial exoskeletons. During the web session, participants will have the opportunity to directly get in contact with renowned experts in the industry.
Urs Schneider, department head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation at Fraunhofer IPA will lead through the program. Speakers will include Verena Kopp, Fraunhofer IPA Team WearRAcon Stuttgart, Dr. Sascha Wischniewski, head of the human factors and ergonomics division of the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA), as well as David Duwe, head of sales at Ottobock, one of the leading companies in the field of exoskeletons.
A+A, the world’s No.1 trade fair and congress for occupational safety and health at work, is cooperating with research experts from Fraunhofer IPA and the German Federal Association for Occupational Safety and Health (Basi) for this online seminar. Fraunhofer is the largest non-profit organization for technology research in Europe.
In the A+A event year, the web session will provide an overview of current research in the field of exoskeletons and offer a first glimpse of a new segment in ergonomic work design at A+A 2021. This includes the Fraunhofer IPA’s Exoworkathlon (the Robotics Park with well-known exoskeleton manufacturers) and the Selfexperience Space, where visitors can experience the technology’s benefits. A+A 2021 will take place from October 26 – 29 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
