Description: Exoskeletons, as forms of wearable robotics technologies, offer the potential to assist workers in performing manually demanding jobs. This webinar explores recent advances in industrial exoskeleton development with a focus on the performance of these technologies in reducing body effort during manual work. The address also details opportunities and challenges for the technologies, especially in relation to user-centered design and technology acceptance.


This year the Irish Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (IHFES) will run their annual event as a session within a big international conference ESREL 2022 (see )  running in TU Dublin and Trinity college this coming 28th of August-1st of September.

If any of you may be interested in participating and submitting a paper or an extended abstract there is a special session on transport also see (deadline is 10th of May don’t worry about the deadline for the abstract submission you can go directly to extended abstract and or paper).

ESREL is the biggest European event in the area or Risk and Reliability Analysis and Safety Management, hopefully this year we will also have the president for the EU osha to join us and many other relevant keynotes and special sessions (even our Health minister). This year the conference will have a special focus on: “Understanding and Managing Risk and Reliability for a Sustainable Future”.

It is the main event organised by the European Safety and Reliability Association (ESRA).

The conference is well established international and even during the pandemic in France in 2021 it was attended by over 600 people 400 of them in presence. We hope that in 2022 the number of attendees in physical presence will be of over 600 or so. We have received over 600. abstracts for it already.

We normally have session on Human Factors and it would be very good if you guys would like to take part in it.

We hope to hear from you soon.
