The EksoZeroG is a lightweight assistive device that has been designed to bear the load of heavy tools and enhance both safety and productivity for workers at construction sites.
Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc. (EKSO), a robotic exoskeleton company, announced that Russ Angold, the company's co-founder and chief technology officer, will be a presenter at the ProCore Groundbreak 2017 construction technology conference being held in Austin, Texas on March 29-31, 2017.
During the ProCore annual conference, which attracts roughly 2,000 attendees, Ekso Bionics will demonstrate the EksoZeroG, a lightweight assistive device that has been designed to bear the load of heavy tools and enhance both safety and productivity for workers at construction sites. A preview and hands-on demonstration of additional new exoskeleton technology to aid in overhead work will also be provided by Ekso Bionics.
“We are excited to demonstrate our technology at Groundbreak and to generate awareness of our innovative construction technology, which makes work sites safer and workers more productive,” said Angold. “We are optimistic that conference attendees will leave the conference wanting to integrate EksoZeroG technology on their own jobsites.”
Angold's brother, Ryan Angold, who himself suffered a spinal cord injury, will discuss firsthand how to overcome life's challenges and will co-present.
“I am so pleased with the progress we have made in advancing our technologies for the industrial market and am excited to showcase the EksoZeroG at Groundbreak 2017,” said Thomas Looby, president and chief executive officer of Ekso Bionics. “Leveraging our extensive IP, we are making advances that we believe will change lives around the world, in both the medical and industrial arenas.”
