Inspire Ep. 12 | HeroWear – Helping Workers Lift and Live Better

In this episode of the DH+ INSPIRE podcast, we sit down with HeroWear’s Karl Zelik (Chief Scientific Officer) and Matt Marino (Director of Ergonomics and Human Factors) to discuss an emerging and impactful technology – passive exosuits.

Designed to reduce the stress placed on the back and core during routine lifting tasks, HeroWear’s passive exosuit is showing significant potential to help critical workers in various industries prevent the pain associated with repetitive stress injuries and help employers take care of their most valuable asset. As we dive deep into the HeroWear story, we discuss:

  • A brief history, the science and importance of exosuits, and how recent research has indicated they may be a major tool in workplace injury prevention.
  • The origin of the exciting startup, and how motivation and mission are critical in the development of any organization.
  • What makes exo technology practical and what to look for when researching a potential exosuit vendor.
  • How exos can help workers feel better at the end of the day, leaving time and energy for what’s most important.
