Dewa tests wearable exoskeletons in fieldwork

Wearable robotic exoskeletons supports the strategy to adopt Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as AI and robotics


Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) is currently testing wearable robotic exoskeletons, developed by SuitX, an American company specialised in bio-technology and exoskeletons for medical and professional uses.

Dewa intends to use exoskeletons for staff performing manual tasks such as manufacturing, construction, assembly, wiring, loading/unloading, automotive workshops, and other uses. This aims to protect them, boost productivity and enhance accuracy.

“Dewa’s initiative to test wearable robotic exoskeletons supports our strategy to adopt Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as AI and robotics. This supports the Dubai 10x initiative, which mandates the Government of Dubai to be a global leader that is 10 years ahead of all other cities through government innovation and the reformation of traditional work mechanisms,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of Dewa.

Al Tayer pointed out that using this technology in fieldwork supports Dewa’s vision to become a globally leading sustainable innovative corporation, and its strategy to employ the latest smart technologies and innovative quality solutions to enhance employee happiness and make fieldwork seamless, efficient and productive. – TradeArabia News Service
