Effect of using a physical assistance device for movements involving trunk bending

Abstract : Exoskeletons are a solution to physically relieve workers while allowing them to control the execution of their tasks and assist them (Baltrusch et al.2018). The study investigated in the search for elements able to quantify the action of a physical assistance device (PAD) on the human body for movements responsible for pathologies recognized as occupational diseases. The evaluation of a PAD allows to determine in which framework the exoskeleton can be useful for the realization of the movement. It is specified that a relevant way to insert exoskeletons in a company by always implementing a study or analysis beforehand to ensure its good integration. The objective of the study is to perform several tasks with and without the Posture Harness (HAPO) in order to analyze the kinematics of the movements and the electrical activity of erector muscles of the spine involved in carrying a load at work to understand its effects on the human body.
