Abstract

Exoskeletal devices can provide assistance and supplement to the biological musculoskeletal members. We present a wearable robotic exoskeleton conceived as an improved lower leg orthosis for compensation of human knee and ankle joints disorders provoked by muscle weaknesses during walking, introducing novel biomechanical and user acceptance aspects and daily performance monitoring functionalities.
