The ErgoX Symposium will premiere during the Annual Meeting as a full-day event on Monday, October 1. The symposium aims at

  • providing an update on human factors, safety, and ergonomics research methods for exoskeletons;

  • highlighting standards and technology on exoskeletons; and

  • informing and educating stakeholders (designers, users, and researchers) about exoskeleton types, applications, and their potential to reduce injuries and increase human performance (productivity, quality, etc.). 

Organized in cooperation with the ASTM International Committee on Exoskeletons and Exosuits F48, the ErgoX exoskeleton symposium will bring together professionals from three groups to share their knowledge, experience, and goals:

  1. Designers and producers will showcase and demonstrate their products.  

  2. Researchers from universities and government agencies will provide information on approaches to the design of human factors research on exoskeletons to appropriately assess fit, usability, safety, ergonomics, productivity and cost-effectiveness.

  3. Users and workers with experience using exoskeletons in production environments will share their evaluation methods, expectations, and findings, both positive and negative.
