It is no secret that lifting items repeatedly can lead to injury to workers. Seoul National University’s Reshaping Exosuit is a posture shaping wearable device that adds impedance to the human joints to make sure lifting is done with the right form. Here is how it works:
A body-powered variable impedance mechanism designed to increase impedance according to how far the wearer’s movement is from the squat-lifting trajectories induces voluntary motion change of wearers.
