Some employees working in the giant warehouse of a delivery express firm in Nanjing have equipped themselves with powered exoskeletons for China’s upcoming 618 shopping festival.
The equipment allows for limb movement with increased strength and protection in the waist.
During peak hours, a worker bends over at least 3,500 times a day when handling parcels.
An employee said it helped a lot despite some inconvenience at first.
Weighting 2.5 kgs, the robotic equipment has increased efficiency by 60 percent.
