Japanese Shipyard Workers Use Robotic Exoskeleton to Help with Heavy Lifting


Manual labourers working in the Osaka shipyard have turned to a commercial exoskeleton in order to relieve stress on their back, increase efficiency, and stay healthier longer. The Power Assist Suit Atoun Model A, as it is snappily known, uses two high-torque AC, battery-powered motors and a sophisticated gearing system to allow users to far exceed their own strength, enabling humans to lift heavy objects all day without breaking a sweat.
