External powered lower extremity orthotic

Sai-Kit Wu, Matthew Jordan, Xiangrong Shen
Powered lower-limb orthosis is a type of wearable mechanical devices that can serve a wide variety of important biomedical purposes. Due to the constraints associated with the actuation technology, the majority of current lower-limb orthoses are either passive or tethered to external power sources, limiting the functionality of such devices. In this paper, the authors present their preliminary research results towards a fully mobile (i.e. untethered) powered lower-limb orthosis, leveraging the high power density of pneumatic actuators for the joint power generation...
