Exoskeletons are promising a new technological revolution on the interface of man and machine. The technology offers amazing opportunities and very difficult design problems, because the machine must work on the conditions of a living human. In this webcast, Professor John Rasmussen from Aalborg University will explain how musculoskeletal simulation can be used in the various stages of the design process to enhance safety, reduce weight and minimize power consumption.
