Survey of Turning Systems Used in Lower Extremity Exoskeletons
Dymitr Paweł Osiński , Danuta Jasińska-Choromańska
AbstractThe paper presents a survey of kinematics of exoskeletons clasping the lower limbs, which enable realization of motion not only within the sagittal plane, but in coronal and transverse planes as well. The emphasis is put on the ways of realizing the turn. The survey is supported by kinematic schemes of the described designs. Appropriate solutions have been compared, indicating their advantages and disadvantages. The survey will be helpful while choosing the way of realizing the turn in the ‘Veni-Prometheus’ System for Verticalization and Aiding Motion.
