Ekso Bionics® to Showcase New Industrial Construction Solution for Heavy Tool Handling at World of Concrete
Attendees invited to try the EksoZeroG technology onsite at the Ekso Bionics booth
RICHMOND, Calif., Jan. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:EKSO), a robotic exoskeleton company, today announced it will showcase its innovative EksoZeroG technology at the World of Concrete (WOC 2017) event January 17-20, 2017, in Las Vegas. The EksoZeroG, a lightweight assistive device for industrial workers, provides an exciting new solution to enhance productivity and workmanship as well as to reduce work-related injuries on construction sites.
“EksoZeroG is the first product in an industrial line that is a strategic priority for Ekso Bionics. The industrial product portfolio seeks to leverage our broad intellectual property, engineering expertise and extensive field testing with key industrial partners,“ said Tom Looby Chief Executive Officer.
Ekso Works, the industrial division of Ekso Bionics, produces the EksoZeroG, which is a versatile, lightweight device that easily mounts to aerial work platform rails or scaffolding and has multiple tool holders to accommodate a wide range of tools. The technology, which is designed to hold heavy tools and thereby offset the direct load from the tool operator, flexes effortlessly, easily following directional guidance during work.
“We are committed to developing innovative technology that makes it easier and safer for skilled workers to continue doing their jobs on construction worksites,” said Russ Angold, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Ekso Bionics. “EksoZeroG technology has been specifically designed to amplify workers by bearing the weight of heavy construction tools, such as rotary hammers and pneumatic chipping guns, during operation. This assistive technology reduces fatigue and injury risk for workers and can increase productivity during these heavy duty applications. Our ultimate goal is to keep workers healthy, happy and productive.”
The Ekso Bionics industrial product line seeks to address one of the biggest challenges facing the construction industry today – protecting workers while finishing jobs on time and within budget. Many companies are seeing a trend of increasing costs related to worker safety, driven primarily by worker fatigue, strain and other job-related injuries. With Ekso Bionics’ innovative technology, workers can complete heavy tool tasks with less fatigue, better workmanship and fewer workplace injuries.
At the Ekso Bionics outdoor booth, #O30608, visitors are invited to try the EksoZeroG and experience for themselves how this innovative technology can significantly help workers in this field.
