This session intends to support the European development of Wearable Robotics by bringing together academia and the potential user industries, such as medical, logistics, construction, manufacturing, a.o. The session will provide a short overview of the product and research state of the art and directions in research, and have presentations from representatives of user industries. The core of the session will be a forum discussion with involvement of the audience on the key issues to address in Wearable Robotics to serve the
market. This information will be used for the Multi Annual Roadmap, to detail the section on Wearable Robotics, drafted by a newly formed Topic Group Wearable Robotics.
