The exoskeletons and wearable robots industry is a young and exciting field, expanding at a rapid pace. According to a recent market study by Wintergreen Research Inc., it was valued at over $130 million in 2018 and is anticipated to reach $5.2 billion by 2025. Due to their versatility, wearable robots can be used in a wide variety of application areas, from factories to hospitals making the number of people who can benefit from assistive devices immense. To facilitate the use of wearable robots and exoskeletons in different market and application areas we are organising a two-day event - Exoskeletons and Wearable Robots: current practice and future perspectives - covering their use in automotive, aviation, construction, health care, logistics, manufacturing and outlook to future application areas.

The event offers a unique opportunity to test wearable robotic devices, listen to leading experts, and receive first-hand experience feedback from different user areas. If you are interested in how available devices can be implemented in your organisation, in following current trends and challenges and expanding your professional network you are encouraged to join us at the BEC! Bilbao Exhibition Centre, Spain on April 23 and April 24, 2020 for what promises to be an interactive and highly valuable event in the field of wearable robotics.

Key highlights of the Exoskeletons and Wearable Robots: current practice and future perspectives event include:

  • Live demonstrations of available technologies and devices
  • Presentations from leading experts in the field of exoskeletons and wearable robots
  • First hand experiences from robotics providers in different application areas
  • Experts present their user stories from their perspective
  • Interactive workshop sessions on the current trends and challenges
  • Networking opportunities to expand your network and establish key contacts

Who should attend this event?

This event will give attendees valuable insights into the world of wearable robotics and to meet leading experts in the field, as well as experienced and aspiring users of wearable robots and exoskeletons, and their developers. If you are interested in how these devices can be implemented in your organisation, be it to support your employees with lifting and carrying tasks and overall postural support or for the use in healthcare to offer a level of assistance to patients then visit www.exoskeleton-event.wearablerobots.eu for details. This event is directed at a broad spectrum of professionals:
