There are many physical aids to lifting and load-carrying on the market. Some work with sophisticated mechanical systems. Others are motor-assisted and a third type combines similar systems with other functions. How far have the developments come? How powerful are the systems? What developments are expected for the near future? Come with your questions and ask the experts!
