  1. 1. Analysis of the User Requirements and Product Specifications for Home-Use of the ABLE Exoskeleton

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Författare :Katlin Kreamer-Tonin; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Exoskeleton; Lower-limb exoskeleton; Spinal cord injury; Home community; Assistive technology; Exoskelett; nedre extremitet; ryggmärgsskada; hem och samhälle; hjälpmedel;

    Sammanfattning : Lower-limb exoskeletons are an emerging technology to provide walking assistance to people who have a spinal cord injury (SCI). Until now, exoskeletons have primarily been used in a clinical setting for a range of applications in rehabilitation, and there is potential for exoskeletons to be used by people with SCI at home.

    Nyckelord :Cable­driven ankle exoskeleton; Torque control; Wearable robotics; Drop foot; Kabeldriven ankel exoskelet; vridmomentkontroll; bärbar robotik; fallfot;

    Sammanfattning : Ankle exoskeletons are designed to help people with movement weakness to restore the walking ability . However, people with gait pathology, for instance, drop foot, usually have difficulties in lifting the front part of foot during gait. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Simulation of Lower Limb Muscle Activity During Inclined Slope Walking

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Författare :Ganesh Prasanth Arumuganainar; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Simulation OpenSim VICON Motion Capture Lower Limb Muscle Activity Analysis Inclined Slope Ramp Gait Analysis Biomechanics Considerations Robotic Exoskeleton Design;

    Sammanfattning : Robotic exoskeletons are designed to assist patients with motor dysfunctions. Recent researches focus on extending the robotic assistance to patient activities other than ground level walking. This study aims to analyse the lower limb muscle activity during inclined slope walking contrasting with that of ground level walking. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Simulation Of Lower Extremity Muscle Activation During Obstacle Clearance

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Författare :Ganesh Balaji Radhakrishnan; [2019]
    Nyckelord :lower limb; muscle activation; exoskeleton; kinematics;

    Sammanfattning : Exoskeletons can be helpful to patients who suffer from muscular dysfunctions. Recent studies focus on exoskeletons which can perform complex human movements. Further analysis is needed in the area of unusual movements like obstacle clearance to design an assistive device which can deliver effective aid to the intended patients in need. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Lower Limb Muscle Synergy During Daily Life Activities : A Way to Convey Intended Motions To a Robotic Assistive Device.

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Författare :Teresa Colangelo; [2018]
    Nyckelord :muscle synergy; lower limb; knee; exoskeleton; EMG;

    Sammanfattning : Powered exoskeletons can assist patients suffering from motor dysfunctions. Recent researches are focused on how to improve the communication system between patient and device. Further research is needed in order to design an EMG based robotic assistive device able to convey intended motions to the patient. LÄS MER
