Lower-limb exoskeletons can be used extensively in manufacturing, medical, rehabilitation, and the military. The design optimisation for each exoskeleton is vary depending on its intended use. Improving the design of the lower-limb exoskeletons encompasses objectives, attributes, and methods for fulfilling various application. This paper aims to establish a conceptual framework for developing most optimum design for lower-limb exoskeletons for industrial use. Additionally, this paper offers a critical review of design optimization for lower-limb exoskeletons with the aim of enhancing the ergonomics of workers in the industrial sector. To achieve this, this paper delves into an overview of both original research papers and review articles to extract valuable methodologies and design considerations for optimising lower-limb exoskeletons specifically for industrial use. The key outcomes of this paper include recommendedmethods, mechanical design considerations, and a conceptual framework specifically tailored for the design optimization of lower-limb exoskeletons in industrial environments. By offering a comprehensive overview of existing research, this review paper not only aids researchers and designers in the field but also benefits end-users, manufacturers, and the environment. The proposed conceptual framework serves as a valuable tool to guide the development of future lower-limb exoskeletons, ensuring a harmonious integration of technology, user needs, and industrial requirements.
