Multi-directional Ankle Impedance During Standing Postures
In this study, we estimated the multi-directional ankle mechanical impedance in two degrees-of-freedom (DOF) during standing, and determined how the stiffness, damping, and inertia vary with ankle angle and ankle torque at different postures... Read more

Reducing the Energy Cost of Human Running Using an Unpowered Exoskeleton
     In this paper, we present a new perspective to design an unpowered exoskeleton for metabolic rate reduction in running. According to our studies on human biomechanics, it was observed that having a torsional spring which applies torque as a linear... Read more

Energy-Optimal Human Walking With Feedback-Controlled Robotic Prostheses: A Computational Study
  Lower-limb amputees typically experience reduced mobility and higher metabolic rates than non-amputees. It may be possible to improve their mobility and metabolic rate with an optimized robotic prosthesis. Here, we use large-scale trajectory optimization on a simulated transtibial amputee with...

Design and Control of the MINDWALKER Exoskeleton
ACCESS PAPER DATA READ FULL ARTICLE ON IEEE XPLORE Abstract Powered exoskeletons can empower paraplegics to stand and walk. Actively controlled hip ab/adduction (HAA) is needed for weight shift and for lateral foot placement to support dynamic balance control and to counteract disturbances... Read more
