The exoskeletons and wearable robots industry is a young and exciting field, expanding at a rapid pace. According to a recent market study by Wintergreen Research Inc., it was valued at over $130 million in 2018 and is anticipated to reach $5.2 billion by 2025. Due to their versatility, wearable robots can be used in a wide variety of application areas, from factories to hospitals making the number of people who can benefit from assistive devices immense. To facilitate the use of wearable robots and exoskeletons in different market and application areas we are organising a two-day event - Exoskeletons and Wearable Robots: current practice and future perspectives - covering their use in automotive, aviation, construction, health care, logistics, manufacturing and outlook to future application areas.
About the event
The Exoskeletons and Wearable Robots: current practice and future perspectives event is co-organised by the COST Action network CA16116 - Wearable Robots for Augmentation, Assistance or Substitution of Human Motor Functions and accelopment AG, a Swiss based company specialised in EU funded research and innovation projects.
