    Emeryville, CA (ots) - Ottobock presents innovations for ergonomic workplaces at
    Chicago ProMat trade show

    Making workplaces healthier, safer, more productive, and more attractive - that
    is how Ottobock Bionic Exoskeletons shapes the future of work. The company, a
    leading manufacturer of exoskeletons, will present its product portfolio at the
    ProMat 2023 trade show in Chicago from March 20th - 23rd at booth N6354.
    Exoskeletons augment the human body and reduce strain during manual
    load-handling tasks, which reduces work-related injuries while increasing
    well-being and productivity.

    Today labor shortage is an unprecedented challenge to many industries in the
    U.S. such as the logistics, retail, automotive, rail and aviation sectors - and
    the pressure is compunded by the ongoing demographic change and increasing sick
    leave. Ottobock exoskeletons provide an innovative approach for reducing
    work-related injuries, especially in the logistics sector where employees miss
    up to 32 days of work per year on average due to back pain and other
    occupational injuries.

    Samuel Reimer, Vice President Ottobock Bionic Exoskeletons North America, said:
    "In the U.S. alone, there are 14 million employees in production and logistics.
    The average associate lifts and moves more than 100 tons of material every week.
    That is equivalent to the weight of a Boeing 747 - which puts extreme stress on
    the human body. Our exoskeletons reduce this risk substantially to the extent
    that associates become healthier and more productive. That's how we shape the
    future of work and contribute to healthier and more sustainable workplaces
    across the U.S."

    Biomechanics: the key to lightweight, flexible systems

    At this year's ProMat trade show, Ottobock will introduce its growing range of
    exoskeleton products including:

    The BackX model is specifically aimed at logistics associates who need to move
    loads manually while retaining their speed and flexibility. The exoskeleton
    reduces the load on the lower back by an average of 60 percent during lifting
    tasks. However, it also allows for a high degree of freedom of movement, so that
    employees can perform activities such as operating forklift trucks and climbing
    stairs. The BackX model is in use at multiple logistics centers of DB Schenker,
    a leading global logistics provider. [Learn more here]

    The Ottobock Shoulder model supports employees in performing strenuous
    activities at or above shoulder height and is used in areas such as automotive
    manufacturing, train maintenance, and aircraft construction. This model is in
    use at numerous major companies, including Boeing, Mazda, and Toyota North
    America. The SNCF, the French national railway company, has also adopted the
    exoskeleton to increase efficiency in the maintenance of its TGV trains. [Learn

    Sensor-based bionic analytics prove the effectiveness

    More than 200 studies have demonstrated the positive impact that exoskeletons
    can have. To allow companies to replicate these findings objectively in their
    setting, Ottobock has developed a 'bionic analytics' offering. It combines
    sensors that precisely analyze employees' work processes before and after
    exoskeleton use, with AI-driven algorythms, and provides clear data points on
    improved ergonomics and productivity.

    DB Schenker, a leading global contract logistics company, is among the first to
    adopt this technology during unloading of containers and palletization. The
    overall strain on employees during manual load handling was significantly
    reduced, while time spent working increased by around 20 percent, i.e.,
    increased productivity. Survey results also showed that participants noticed a
    definite improvement in their work situation.

    Researching the future of work

    Bionic Exoskeletons has been a division of the global German health-tech company
    Ottobock since 2018. At the end of 2021, the division was expanded with the
    acquisition of the California-based tech-company SuitX. Now the Hub in
    Emeryville has become a research location where the company continuously
    develops products that will shape the future of work.
