Abstract

Mechanical loading of the spine is a known risk factor for the development of low-back pain. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of an inclination-controlled exoskeleton on spinal compression forces during lifting with various techniques. Peak compression decreased on average by around 20%, and this was largely independent of lifting technique.
