To date, many contractors have tried to address safety and injury problems with data-driven software solutions. But these approaches require training workers to use the new systems and rely on them accurately inputting the data. There’s also the matter of being able to use and make sense of the data effectively.

Fortunately, innovative hardware like full-body powered exoskeletons is on the horizon, promising to change that — and revolutionize construction. Using the technology means users wear a robotic suit powerful enough to augment human strength, reducing fatigue. This new playbook explores how robotic exoskeletons can provide comprehensive solutions to many of these problems in a cost-effective, easy-to-use technology that augments existing labor forces — and improves the quality of life for all workers. The playbook highlights:

  • Why older solutions simply don’t work today
  • The twin problems of injury and labor shortages
  • Four challenges contractors face — and why innovation leaders are excited about the potential for powered exoskeletons
