Key Highlights

  • Global exoskeleton revenues are expected to rise from $392m (£284m) in 2020 to $6.8bn in 2030.
  • The exoskeleton reduces the chance of muscle damage by 50%.
  • As the price will go down it will be easily available and at a low price.

 Exoskeleton: empowering your endurance

The high-tech body armor is more specifically called an Exoskeleton. The exoskeleton is an exterior structure that assists, covers, and defends the wearer, resulting in increased strength and endurance. The equipment is constantly used in everyday life around the world.

Integration of human and machine, advancement in the technology 


The rapid technological advancement results in the growth of the use of Exoskeletons by factory employees. User versions are now being created to help people do everything from DIY to cycling, climbing stairs, and other everyday tasks more quickly. The combination of humans and robots into one device opens up a whole new world of opportunities. Some of the early implementations were based on military and medical applications, but there has been a surge in use in a variety of situations in the last few years.

This advancement will help the common people, working very hard. This Iron body armour can save them from serious injuries.

Benefits of exoskeleton        

Prof Kazerooni, head of the University of California’s Berkeley Robotics and Human Engineering Laboratory, says that the primary advantage of the company’s exoskeletons is to reduce muscle exhaustion. The muscle activity in the back, hip, and knees decrease by 50%. If muscle movements decrease, the chance of muscle damage decreases.

Iron hand by General Motors


General Motors is also considering a battery-powered exoskeleton glove produced by the Swedish company Bioservo. The Iron Hand glove has sensors and motors in each finger that automatically react to the amount of force applied to the wearer’s hand when raising or squeezing something. As a result, the glove absorbs some of the pressure. BioServo says it can increase the wearer’s hand strength by 20%.

Full body exoskeleton


Mr. Cottrell cites Delta Airlines, which revealed last year that it was researching a full-body exoskeleton manufactured by Utah-based Sarcos Robotics. The powered suit, which is being tested by Delta freight-handling, servicing, and ground support personnel, can lift to 14st (90kg) for eight hours at a time. A full-body exoskeleton usually costs about $45,000. However, as economies of scale and technical sophistication increase, prices will fall.

The day is not far away when we will start using this iron body armor. These will not only reduce the physical exhaustion but can also improve the style of working with the advancement in technology.
