The AWN-03 is a Panasonic Assist Robot designed for those individuals who are elderly or who have a weak back to help them with activities and movements such as lifting boxes and bending down. Uses technology to work in tandem with a person’s own abilities, resulting in a better standard of living. Panasonic has been developing advanced control and sensor technology and is applying them to develop assist robots. Using the robot’s motors, it assists with human body mechanics. This device increases the quality of work life naturally by decreasing the burden of the weight and reduces strain on the back.

The AWN-03 was developed to provide lower back support. It automatically senses the user's motion when lifting and holding heavy objects, and sends a signal to the motors to rotate the gears. It also raises the user's upper body while pushing on their thighs, and as a result, reduces stress on the user's lower back by 15 kilograms.
