Wearable Robotics Association

The Wearable Robotics Association (WearRA) is the only professional association dedicated to the entrepreneurs, businesses and academics fueling the wearable robotics industry. WearRA provides a forum for the wearable robotics community to share ideas and collaborate in a way that expands and improves the ecosystem of technologies and participants.

ASTM International Exo Technology Center of Excellence

ASTM International’s Exo Technology Center of Excellence (ET CoE) brings together industry, healthcare, academia, and government to accelerate safety and reliability standards for exoskeletons and their systems. Through research-to-standards, knowledge sharing, and education efforts, the ET CoE will ensure greater confidence in the baseline performance of exoskeletons and drive faster commercialization and adoption of the technology.

ASTM Committee F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits

ASTM Committee F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits was formed in 2017 to develop voluntary consensus standards for exoskeletons and exosuits. Subcommittees will address safety, quality, performance, ergonomics and terminology for systems and components during the full life cycle of the product – from before usage, to maintenance, to disposal – including, security and information technology considerations. The activities cover industrial, emergency response, medical, military and consumer applications covering passive and active systems, enhancing and decreasing effects systems, as well as systems with physical and cognitive integration.

Exoskeleton Report

Exoskeleton Report focuses on supplying you with news and resources on the emerging technological field of exoskeletons, exosuits, and wearable robotics. The Exoskeleton Report LLC became incorporated in 2016 and until now has been entirely a volunteer effort. This places the Exoskeleton Report in a unique position: we are not beholden to any specific company, laboratory, or organization. We have the luxury of staying objective and independent while the exoskeleton industry grows and matures.
