Description

Exoskeletons are a special type of collaborative robot that can be thought of as a humanoid robot clung to a human body (or a pilot). This particular robot has joints similar to the joints found inside a human body, and as a result the motion feels more natural. For actuating the bones human body uses muscles, these muscles mimic the behavior of a spring (unlike a rigid member) and this allowed us to be more agile. Adopting the same approach of compliant actuators (over the stiff ones) has several advantages, all leading to a more life like Exoskeleton's motion.
