It may be of interest for Biomch-L readers to be aware of the ErgoX Symposium: Exoskeletons in the Workplace- Assessing Safety, Usability, and Productivity which will be organized by Human Factors and Ergonomics Society on Monday, October 1, the day before the HFES Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.

The symposium will include two keynote presentations, user and developer discussion panels, and human factors/ergonomics research methods that dive into end user population accommodation, usability, safety, and ergonomics. The Closing Discussion Panel will allow for audience interaction with experts from workers compensation, the U.S. Department of Defense, medical exoskeleton device researchers, and industry standards experts to help shape near-term and far-term next steps in exoskeleton development.
