On March 24, 2021, Comau's Wearable Robotics Specialist Cayla Zielinski will present the latest product in Comau's wearable exoskeleton line, MATE-XT in a webinar hosted by the Wearable Robotics Association (WearRA).
During the presentation, Cayla will discuss the benefits of incorporating MATE-XT to fully accommodate the specific needs of workers in demanding industrial, non-industrial and open-air environments. This webinar is part of a series put on by WearRA leading up to their annual WearRAcon event.
MATE-XT is a new version of Comau's wearable exoskeleton that fully accommodates the specific needs of workers in demanding industrial, non-industrial and open-air environments. Featuring a slim, lightweight carbon fiber structure and an intuitive regulation system, the water, dust, UV-light and temperature resistant design can be quickly adjusted to fit virtually any body frame.
It is the only commercially-available exoskeleton with EAWS (Ergonomic Assessment Work-Sheet) certification, attesting to its ability to reduce biomechanical loads during strenuous tasks. Based on studies conducted at customers' sites using the EAWS worksheet, Comau estimates that the wearable exoskeleton can help workers increase accuracy during overhead tasks by 27% and execution speed by 10%.
It can also reduce cycle times by at least 5%. From an operational standpoint, MATE-XT facilitates increased precision, quality, and performance. It reduces shoulder muscle activity by 30% and diminishes the effort felt by workers, with more than 50% of workers reporting beneficial upgrades in job quality.
