A Kiwi company is using exoskeleton technology to help businesses keep workers safer from workplace injuries.

The wearable exosuit has built in sensors that support muscles by tracking body movements.

AI technology then provides real-time data which highlights health risks due to impact of repeated movements or posture, while even flagging dehydration.

The robotic technology has been proven to reduce downtime due to injury by 25 percent, injury-causing bends by 75 percent, and sprains and strains by 30 percent.

Exxovantage founder and global CEO Aarnaud Daurat joined Mike Hosking.
