3 workers at a lettuce field

Tested

Tested the difference of total lifts, good lifts, bad lifts, V02, and steps of three lettuce field workers with a back support exoskeletons vs without a back support exoskeleton.

Results

  • VO2 per lift with support was -25%

  • Total number of lifts with support was +60%

  • Ratio of good lifts with support was +85%

  • Total number of steps was +70%

 

Bottom Line

Exoskeleton reduced metabolic cost, enhanced lifting form,

and increased productivity.
