As full-body exoskeletons available in the market can be costly for construction companies, the more common types found on the job include:

• Back support exoskeletons: These devices ensure workers are lifting objects in the correct manner while helping them maintain proper posture.

• Arm support limbs: These exoskeletons aid employees in lifting heavy tools and similar items. Workers can avoid repetitive stress injuries with these limbs, even when performing repetitive tasks over the long term.

• Mounted arm exoskeletons: This version consists of a spring-loaded arm allowing a worker to carry a heavy tool, with the tool’s weight transmitted to the ground. With this device, workers can complete tasks much more quickly.
