Description

The SNCF wants to put a stop to the arduous work involved in maintaining railway rolling stock. Developed with the company Ergosanté Technologie to meet the demands of the work, a modular exoskeleton, like a Swiss Army knife, is arriving in the technical centres. The aim is to preserve the physical health of the employee, without trying to turn him or her into a superwoman/superman.

La SNCF veut mettre un frein à la pénibilité des travaux de maintenance du matériel roulant ferroviaire. Développé avec la société Ergosanté Technologie pour répondre aux exigences de travail, un exosquelette modulaire, façon couteau suisse, arrive dans les technicentres. Objectif : préserver la santé physique de l'agent, sans chercher à en faire un surhomme.
