Can Wearable Exoskeletons Make My Job Easier? | David Townliand | Ekso Bionics
Wearable exoskeletons have been a staple in science fiction for decades. They're a reality now and they serve a multitude of purposes from rehabilitative & recovery for people that have sustained life-altering injuries to trades people that can wear an assistive exoskeleton that will reduce repetitive stress injuries and increase productivity. Imagine being able to work a few more years to pass on knowledge and knowhow on a construction site with the help of an assistive exoskeleton?
Over the past fifteen years, we’ve continued to drive our expertise in creating wearable devices to augment human potential. Our exoskeleton technology is helping with endurance and allowing human capabilities to go beyond previous limits. We are also bringing hope to individuals who may be dealing with loss of mobility and independence or paralysis after a stroke, brain injury, or spinal cord injury. We’re passionate about making a difference with our products, offering potential benefits to workers and individuals around the world.
I am originally from Wenatchee, WA and attended the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY. Before coming to Ekso I spent 5 years as a Human Resource Officer for the US Army. During my time as a Human Resources Officer a large part of my job was to track and minimize service related injuries to maintain the health of our fighting force. When I left the Army I was very excited to work for Ekso as a company that is focused on preventing injury and injury recovery.
Ekso Bionics supports human movement with innovative solutions that make everyday work safer and easier.
