Evaluation of Impact of Exoskeletons on Performance and Safety of Construction Workers

Start Date: March 2022

Duration: 4 Years

This research project aims to evaluate the impact of exoskeletons on performance and safety associated with construction tasks. Specifically, the suitability of exoskeletons for physically demanding construction tasks will be assessed to understand the impact of wearing an exoskeleton from a kinematic, biomechanical, and usability perspective. The findings will also guide future research on design and development of customized exoskeletons specifically designed for construction tasks.
