Exoskeletons can help your employees do their jobs better, be happier to come to work every day, and never want to leave such a convenient workplace. As a result, you can become a very appealing business for both job applicants and buyers. In addition, quicker fulfillment, construction, etc. (depending on the industry) brings more revenue and a better reputation.
The one con seems to be the price. Buying exoskeletons may be costly, but the financial benefit you will get as a result will justify it in a short time. Gladly, more and more businesses realize that.
The market is expected to reach $1.8 billion by the year 2025. This is quite a rise from $68 million in 2014.
The advantages are plenty, and we’re going to cover the five most important ones.
1. Better Workplace Comfort
Exoskeletons offer posture support, reducing stress on muscles and joints. Usually, because of increased stress, people feel discomfort. The more physical work they need to do, the bigger the scale of discomfort is.
When using outer skeletons, employees aren’t bothered with unpleasant feelings, which improves overall workplace comfort. The key points of load impacts, such as shoulders, upper arms, back, lower back, are relieved.
2. Decreased Risk of Fatigue
Exoskeletons take a part of the weight a person needs to pick up or carry. This makes the employee’s muscles rest more, which reduces the risk of fatigue by the end of the day since repetitive movements can exhaust involved muscles easily.
So, a supportive mechanism for the upper part of the body will solve the problem. Your workers will feel better by the end of the day and the next day when they must do the same amount of work.
3. Higher Productivity
As a result of wearing an outer skeleton, people become more productive. They can focus on the task entirely without being distracted by lower back pain or muscle strain. Research shows that productivity grows up to 27 times, depending on the work.
People don’t need to rest after every hour of work since they don’t feel exhausted as usual.
4. Lower Risk of Injury
With reduced fatigue and exhaustion comes a lower risk of injury at the workplace. Any quick movement with a heavy object may cause anything from muscle strain to more serious injuries that require hospitalization.
5. Performance Improvement
Employees can perform more tasks, and every task is performed better.
Employees’ stamina improves; they feel healthier and are more satisfied with their work. As a result, their performance improves, which is great for the business as well.
Exoskeletons Are the Best Addition to Your Workplace
With all those benefits, your business will experience a new wave of productivity, attention, revenue increase, etc. In addition, a lower risk of accidents and injuries will make the workplace safer and friendlier.
Support robots are used in many industries, including automotive, construction, fulfillment, and others. But, of course, the most important advantage is a lower risk of injuries because even a minor accident can reduce the number of years the person can work. Not to mention permanent injuries can lead to physical and mental trauma and the inability to work using one’s body.
