Surge in Adoption of Technologically Advanced Smart Exoskeleton Products to Propel Market

A number of people with mobility disorders due to various diseases is increasing rapidly across the globe. Thus, adoption of smart exoskeleton products is rising to improve the quality of life of these people, thereby driving the demand for these products. Advantages of smart exoskeleton include increasing efficiency, productivity, decrease in worker injuries, and decline in healthcare and disability costs. Moreover, it can be used instead of industrial robots and eliminates the need of completely automated solutions. These factors boost the adoption of technologically advanced smart exoskeleton products in various industries and subsequently, drive the market.

Additionally, robotic rehabilitation systems (RRS) help reduce costs, improve treatment quality, and increase productivity of therapists. Modern developments are promising to obtain exoskeleton with a natural and a wide range of motions. Thus, adoption of robot technology in healthcare settings is fueling the demand for smart exoskeleton products. Hence, key players operating in the market are engaged in the development of new innovative technologically advanced products to address the needs of patients. For instance, Ekso Bionics, a prominent player, is engaged in the development of wearable technology to augment human potential. The company has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market its Ekso GT robotic exoskeleton. Ekso GT is the first exoskeleton cleared by the FDA for use with stroke patients. Thus, a surge in the adoption of technologically advanced products is likely to augment the market.

Material Sciences, AI Research Help to Boost Adoption of Smart Exoskeleton

Wearable exoskeleton are being used to support the motor function for people with severe mobility impairments. However, the market adoption of exoskeleton is relatively low due to factors concerning the weight of the equipment and sometimes ineffective prediction of the wearer’s movements, while walking or approaching an obstacle. Hence, companies in the smart exoskeleton market are increasing their research in robotics, material sciences, and artificial intelligence (AI), which help to make mobility assistance and rehabilitation tools more lightweight, compact, and effective for the wearer.

The BioMot project hailing from the Human Locomotion Laboratory in Madrid is advancing in the field of smart exoskeleton by demonstrating that personalized computational models of the human body can effectively be used to control wearable exoskeleton.

Lightweight, High Performance Personalized Wearable Exoskeleton Increase Worker Safety

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a significant percentage of worker fatalities occur at construction sites. Companies in the smart exoskeleton market are developing devices that improve worker safety and efficiency. This is being achieved by partnering with researchers to seek planning grants from organizations such as the National Science Foundation as part of their 10 Big Ideas - Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier (FW-HTF) program, which involves innovations in exoskeleton.

Lightweight and high performance personalized wearable devices are being made available by manufacturers in the smart exoskeleton market for users in the construction industry.

Next-gen Military Exoskeleton Deploy Export of Data from Soldiers

The smart exoskeleton market is anticipated to progress to reach US$ 3.4 Bn by the end of 2030. Manufacturers are unlocking business opportunities for devices used in military applications to diversify their income streams. Lockheed Martin - a global security and aerospace company is increasing its marketing capabilities to be known for its research and innovation in military exoskeleton that export data from the wearer or soldier.

In order to establish stable revenue streams, companies in the smart exoskeleton market are designing devices that support repetitive and continuous kneeling or squatting, lifting and climbing with heavy loads. They are innovating in exoskeleton that help to transfer much of the weight a soldier carries to the ground, while allowing warfighters to carry extra gear with less effort climbing stairs or steep terrain.
