  1. 1. A comparative study to explore the advantages of passive exoskeletons by monitoring the muscle activity of workers

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för elektroteknik, matematik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Md Arifur Rahman; [2021]
    Keywords : Exoskeletons; Shimmer Sensor; EMG Signal;

    Abstract : Manufacturing and construction workers undertake physically strenuous activities increasing the risk of health problems, disability, and sick leave, leading to lower job attractiveness and job candidate scarcity. In the EU, up to 44 million workers are affected by workplace-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), representing a total annual cost of more than €240 billion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Online Variable Recruitment for Pneumatic Artificial Muscles with Springs

    University essay from KTH/Mekatronik

    Author : Anthony Loccisano; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs) have gained attention in the realm of soft robotics for their high power to weight ratio, low manufacturing cost, low weight, and relatively high compliance. This makes them appear as a great candidate for exoskeletons. READ MORE

  3. 3. Simulation of spring uses in an ankle exoskeleton during human gait

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Íris Dröfn Magnúsdóttir; [2020]
    Keywords : simulation; exoskeleton; ankle; moco;

    Abstract : Background:Approximately 15% of the world’s population are affected bysome kind of disability where over 150 conditions may affect the human gaitpattern. The ability to ambulate with ease is important for overall well-being.Various assistive devices have been developed to improve mobility of theirusers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of a Novel Hand Exoskeleton for the Rehabilitation and Assistance of Upper Motor Neuron Syndrome Patients

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

    Author : Ole Luhmann; [2020]
    Keywords : Grasping Augmentation; Hand Exoskeleton; Product Development; Rehabilitation; Upper Motor Neuron Syndrome; Grepp augmentation; exoskelett; produktutveckling; rehabilitering; övre motorneurosjukdom;

    Abstract : Hand exoskeletons are wearable robotic devices which are used to compensate for impaired handmovements in patientswith impaired upper-limbs. These devices can either help patients to grasp objects for a therapeutic purpose or to performactivities of daily living. READ MORE

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

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

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

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE
