Design of an innovative exoskeleton
An exoskeleton is a device capable of supporting the human body from the outside. The exoskeletons are designed to allow people suffering from movement disorders to walk or to increase strength and endurance. Exoskeletons currently on the market are bulky and difficult to use, since they do not provide control of balance during the gait.
The dream of E.O.S. Spa, founder of the project, is to realize and commercialize a new exoskeleton which should ensure easy wearability, reduced weight and low price. In this content, our research team developed some useful tools that reach a deeper understanding of human locomotion.
