Design of an Anthropomorphic Lower-Limb Exoskeleton System

Human locomotion can be influenced by several factors such as neuromuscular and joint disorders that affect the functionality of joints and can cause partial or complete paralysis. Reduced mobility is estimated to
affect over 1% of the population in the world. Many individuals require mobility assistive technologies to keep up with their daily life and the demand for those devices increases with age. A wearable robotic exoskeleton is an external structural mechanism with joints and links corresponding to those of a human body and synchronized with its motion to enhance or support natural body movements. The exoskeleton transmits torques from its actuators through rigid exoskeletal links to the human joints and augments human strength. TO BE CONT'D
