The Lower Limb Exoskeleton for a Soldier: Technology and Design Issues

Tomasz Mirosław , Adam Zawadzki , Zbigniew Żebrowski

Abstract

Research institutes as well as military institutions all over the world carry out studies on exoskeletons. Devices for disabled and healthy persons are within the scope of the research. Functional design basis for both of these groups are radically different. The authors of this paper show challenges in structural design and available technology that occur while designing such a device for a healthy human, in this case a soldier (marine). Due to the many faces of the subject, the authors limited this paper to kinematic issues and human-machine cooperation.
