  2. 2. A comparative study to explore the advantages of passive exoskeletons by monitoring the muscle activity of workers

    Master-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för elektroteknik, matematik och naturvetenskap

    Författare :Md Arifur Rahman; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Exoskeletons; Shimmer Sensor; EMG Signal;

    Sammanfattning : Manufacturing and construction workers undertake physically strenuous activities increasing the risk of health problems, disability, and sick leave, leading to lower job attractiveness and job candidate scarcity. In the EU, up to 44 million workers are affected by workplace-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), representing a total annual cost of more than €240 billion. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Evaluation of Exoskeleton Using XSENS System Including Scalefit

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Författare :Elia Mora Quiles; Diego Borrell; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Exoskeleton; overhead tasks; musculoskeletal disorders; ergonomic assessments; Xsens system; ScaleFit; IPS-IMMA.;

    Sammanfattning : Although the level of automation in the automotive industry is currently high, real humans are still required for assembly tasks, for example, during overhead tasks. This type of work can cause injuries in workers in this sector, especially musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), being a cause for the inability to work in developed countries and, in turn, becoming a significant health problem.
