In the near future, workers will wear robots to augment their own muscle power and work with reduced risk of injury and fatigue. Take the updated LG CLOi SuitBot for instance: it supports the user’s waist and takes the load off while performing lifting and lowering heavy items.
SuitBot supports 50-degree extension and 90-degree flexion of the waist and activates when the wearer bends at a 65-degree angle. It disengages when the user is standing in upright position. You will be able to catch it at CES 2019.
