Descripción física: 10 p.

Notas: Sumario: In recent years, new body-worn assistive devices so-called exoskeletons have been introduced in the workplace. Their use is expected to become more commonplace in the future, since prototypes of exoskeletons have proven to be beneficial in areas such as medical care. In particular, exoskeletons appear to be a new approach to addressing the issue of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs). WRMSDs are one of the most challenging problems for workplaces in Europe. 1 Figure 1 shows the percentages of workers working in tiring and painful positions, which can be associated with poor workplace design, as working conditions are still a major problem all across Europe. Exoskeletons have been developed to address this problem.
