Description

Most factory environments are characterized by increased worker absenteeism arising from post-related injuries resulting in Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD). This in turn impacts the factory floor, in terms of increased costs arising from unsuitable factory environment, poor productivity and low-quality finished goods. The exoskeleton technology has evolved over the years from an external cover to potential industrial applications given that it has the ability to empower individuals, improve ergonomics and provide safety to factory workers. This research will provide insight into the major industries where exoskeleton could be integrated within assembly line processes and further establishes the potential costs, benefits, net present value and ROIs associated with implementing the technology.
