This study is an updated systematic review of papers published in the last 5 years on industrial back-support exoskeletons. The research questions were aimed at addressing the recent findings regarding objective (e.g. body loading, user performance) and subjective evaluations (e.g. user satisfaction), potential side effects, and methodological...

In collaborative robotic applications, human and robot have to work together during a whole shift for executing a sequence of jobs. The performance of the human robot team can be enhanced by scheduling the right tasks to the human and the robot. The scheduling should consider the task execution constraints, the variability in the task execution...

Low-back pain is the number one cause of disability in the world, with mechanical loading as one of the major risk factors. Exoskeletons have been introduced in the workplace to reduce low back loading. During static forward bending, exoskeletons have been shown to reduce back muscle activity by 10% to 40%. However, effects during dynamic...

In bijna ieder bedrijf werken ze: medewerkers die geestelijk zijn afgehaakt. TNO-wetenschapper Jenny Huijs deed onderzoek naar dit 'mental pensioen' en de manieren om werkplezier en productiviteit te verbeteren. Soms kan roulerend voorzitterschap in vergaderingen al een verschil maken.

With mechanical loading as the main risk factor for LBP in mind, exoskeletons are designed to reduce the load on the back by taking over a part of the required moment. The present study assessed the effect of a passive exoskeleton on back and abdominal muscle activation, hip and lumbar flexion and on the contribution of both the human and the...

Duwen en trekken in het werk is een onderbelicht thema binnen de fysieke belasting. Onterecht, want dit type belasting komt veel voor en verhoogt de kans op schouderklachten. De nieuwe Duw en Trek Check (DUTCH) maakt duidelijk of de belasting te hoog is en welke maatregelen er mogelijk zijn. Vakmedia
