Baltimore Workers’ Compensation Lawyers: New Technology to Prevent Workplace InjuriesJanuary 11, 2017
Modular exoskeletons may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but it is actually a new technology that has the capability to prevent workplace injuries. Developed by a company called suitX, the Modular Agile eXoskeleton (MAX) was designed to support specific body parts that tend to be more prone to injuries, particularly when workers are doing physically demanding work. The ability to prevent such injuries is a significant breakthrough in Workers’ Compensation.
Other companies have also developed new technologies that will improve safety and help prevent workplace accidents. A company called XOEye Technologies developed safety goggles that come equipped with technology that allows them to take pictures and stream video over Wi-Fi. This enables employers to see the accident and the events leading up to it in real time.
Telehealth is another company that is developing technology that will help injured workers. Using their software on a tablet or computer, individuals will be able to receive medical attention the moment the injury occurs. Access to immediate care means that the employee can be diagnosed quickly and pursue the appropriate treatment. Three-dimensional printing and brain implants are examples of developing technology that can help workers who have suffered spinal injuries. These are just a few examples of the technological advances that can have a significant impact on workplace injuries and Workers’ Compensation.
Regardless of Technology, Work Accidents Still Occur
Time will tell if such technology will pave the way for improved workplace safety. Until then, awareness, using proper safety gear, and adherence to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) standards will be instrumental in preventing workplace accidents in Maryland.
