When applying design measures at the technical and personal level, a variety of technical support systems such as lifting aids, collaborative robots or exoskeletons are commonly used. These are often integrated into existing workplaces and workflows. This raises the question whether or not the support system for the work system is effective, and how it should be designed.
We aim to analyse and evaluate the elimination of the previously identified problem by the support system, as well as the impact of its introduction on the work system and the possibility of a new burden on the workers through the support system.
From this knowledge we will derive design recommendations for the successful use of support systems. The main focus is on task and workplace design to reduce the stress on the individual.
