Technology has moved on leaps and bounds over the past 60 years. The world of science and engineering has been able to send a robot to mars right through to making artificial machines that learn like we do.

Out of these amazing endeavours we now have been able to use this to engineer humans, from wearable robotic arms through to wearable robotic suit that can help us, protect us and even make us feel better. These are known as exoskeletons.

Join Steve & Matt in an amazing talk “Engineering Humans” where we will examine the use of exoskeletons in a whole range of different environments including demonstrations of exoskeletons to show you how they work.
