Positive effects of arm support exoskeletons in reducing the shoulder load, have been reported mainly from laboratory studies. However, for exoskeletons to provide worker support in practice, they need to be accepted as well. Therefore, it is necessary to obtain insight into the user experience and attitude towards exoskeleton use, in relevant...

The effectiveness of exoskeletons could be enhanced by incorporating low back muscle fatigue estimates in their control. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether low back muscle fatigue can be estimated using the spectral content of trunk extensor muscle high-density EMG (HDEMG) by considering the motor unit action potential...

Estimation of low-back load can be used to determine the assistance to be provided by an actuated back-support exoskeleton. To this end, an EMG-driven muscle model and a regression model can be implemented. The goal of the regression model is to reduce the number of required sensors for load estimation. Both models need to be calibrated. This...

To evaluate the biomechanical effect of exoskeletons during lifting, three studies were performed to compare spine compression during lifting without and with three exoskeletons (Laevo, Robo-Mate, SPEXOR). In these studies, participants (11, 10 and 10, respectively) lifted boxes (10, 15 and 10 kg, respectively) from ankle height. Spine...

Workplace innovation, as it developed from the beginning of this century in Europe, is a member of the Sociotechnical Systems Design (STSD) family (Mohr & Van Amelsvoort, 2016), going back to the restructuring of Europe after the Second World War, starting more or less the same policies for productivity and industrial democracy in several...

Redesigning organisations and work processes can lead to better organisational performance and jobs in general (e.g., Bloom & van Reenen, 2010; Boxall, 2012; Boxall & Macky, 2009). Workplace innovation (WPI), a specific approach focusing on participative organisational redesign, is beneficial for both business performance and the quality of jobs...

Human-centred design (HCD) is an approach which enables designers, developers and engineers to focus their projects on prospective users of the products or services they are working on. It enables them to focus on users’ experiences and to involve them throughout the process of design and development, in an iterative and multidisciplinary...

The majority of people living with a common mental disorder are employed, but many are at greater risk of job loss and permanent labor market exclusion than colleagues without these problems (OECD; Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, 2012). In addition, the costs of mental ill-health for society are large, reaching 3;4.5% of...

This chapter presents a brief history of expertise studies and Artificial Intelligence from a joint cognitive systems viewpoint. Expertise is currently viewed as skilled adaptation to complexity and novelty. Artificial intelligence, when restricted to machine learning systems, results in brittle systems that cannot cope with unanticipated...

Companies try to make the best of their inputs. The COVID-19 crisis is an important reason for companies to rethink how they should organise their work. Markets are in turmoil and companies are not sure whether they will manage to sell anything, let alone be sure that they can make the product or provide the service. In times of social distance,...

Motion sickness has gained renewed interested in the context of the developments in vehicle automation in which we are witnessing a transition from a driver-centric to passenger-centric design philosophy. As a corollary, motion sickness can be expected to become considerably more prevalent which creates a hurdle towards the successful...

Ziekteverzuim en arbeidsongeschiktheid zijn binnen de A&G-psychologie belangrijke thema’s. De reden is dat het gaat om de gevolgen van gezondheidsproblemen van werk-nemers die vertaald worden in het niet meer kunnen verrichten van werk. Vaak zijn dat kortdurende perioden van afwezigheid, maar het kan ook gaan om langdurige afwezig-heid of zelfs...

The changing labour market and unpredictability of careers necessitate employees to adopt non-traditional norms of career success and assess their career in terms of employability. We propose that employees could promote their employability specifically through engagement in challenging work experiences. High quality jobs provide employees with...

Interpersonal EEG synchrony derived from the hyperscanning technique has the potential to reveal brain mechanisms beyond the border of traditional analysis within an individual subject. However, the inter-brain connectivity has not been fully investigated using wearable consumer-grade EEG devices which can enable a variety of application in a...

Privacy has long been perceived as a hindrance to innovation. It has been considered to raise costs for data governance without providing real benefits. However, the attitude of various stakeholders towards the relationship between privacy and innovation has started to change. Privacy is increasingly embraced as an enabler of innovation, given...
