WEARABLE ROBOTS: FROM EXOSKELETONS TO PROSTHESES

Virtual Conference 8th of October 2020

Taking a deep-dive into the world of wearable robots and understanding how the industry has evolved over the year and the new emerging opportunities.

In the fast pace of robotics and AI, there is a huge revolution in the way industries are previewing exoskeletons and prosthesis, and as per data bridge market forecasts, the wearable exoskeleton market
be around 8.3 Billion USD by 2025.

With the help of modern exoskeletons, production line employees in the automotive industries can reduce the risk of injury while carrying 10times their body weight. Replacing the wheelchair exosuits can help to walk again. Wearable exoskeletons have traveled a long way from having mere industrial applications into a gift for the disabled and the elderly.

We will discuss the role of the wearable prosthesis in sports and how it is also changing the way disabled people exercise and carry out their day to day work without being dependent on others. The future of
wearable robots look limitless and we would like to empower our audience with this knowledge.
