The lockheed Martin team develop and deakin university cooperation FORTIS exoskeleton
Sep 18, 2018

Lockheed Martin Australia business development senior manager James Heading to Deakin research team appreciated, and summarizes the exoskeleton research related internal challenges.

"Originated from lockheed Martin exoskeleton research, in order to help soldiers long-distance transportation of heavy equipment, how the human body and the energy consumption of the same principles are applied in the exoskeleton development, industrial environment," said the Heading.


"Support the exoskeleton technology may seem very simple, but the technology development help rather than obstacles is a seemingly difficult engineering tasks.No two persons are the same, so the exoskeleton need to adjust design and suitable for any size, and adapt to different human body measurement, "he concluded.

Deakin university IISRI senior researcher Dr Hossny to Darius Nahavandi leadership programs, appreciated, this is used to determine the importance of biomechanical analysis of auxiliary equipment.

"This project is to accelerate the design and adjust the design of the exoskeleton test cycle," he said."In the workplace using assistive devices, often need to consider the trade-offs.Although auxiliary equipment to help guide the load through the skeleton structure of the exoskeleton, and optimized the operator's movement, but our work to enable them to cope with the increasing in motion to repeat and indirect load, "he explains.

Other IISRI researchers involved in the project is Navid Mohajer, Imali Hettiarachchi and Julie Iskander.
