Abstract / Summary

In HEiKA-EXO we investigated design and control of a lower leg exoskeleton for medical applications based on expertise available at KIT in humanoid robotics and the University of Heidelberg in mathematical modeling and optimization. The first exoskeleton prototype features two active degrees of freedom in the knee and ankle joints. In addition to the mechatronics design of the prototype we established a model-based optimization tool for design and motion optimization of tightly coupled human-exoskeleton systems.
