In this paper, we present the design, control, and preliminary evaluation of the Symbitron exoskeleton, a lower limb modular exoskeleton developed for people with a spinal cord injury. The mechanical and electrical configuration and the controller can be personalized to accommodate differences in impairments among individuals with spinal cord injur...
Chapter
This work was devoted to preliminary test the Achilles ankle exoskeleton and its NeuroMuscular Controller (NMC) with a test pilot affected by incomplete spinal cord injury. The customization of the robot controller, i.e. a subject-specific tailoring of the assistance level, was performed and a 10-session training to optimize human-robot interaction...
Chapter
In the Symbitron Project, one of the main objectives is to develop a safe, bio-inspired, and personalized wearable exoskeleton that enables individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) to walk without additional assistance, by complementing their remaining motor function. The first target group of five subjects, have enough hip control to keep thems...
Article
This paper evaluates the Achilles exoskeleton. The exoskeleton is intended to provide push-off assistance for healthy subjects during walking. The assistance is provided by a series elastic actuator that has been optimized to provide maximal push-off power. The paper presents the control method of the exoskeleton and the evaluation of the exoskelet...

Powered exoskeletons can empower paraplegics to stand and walk. Actively controlled hip ab/adduction (HAA) is needed for weight shift and for lateral foot placement to support dynamic balance control and to counteract disturbances in the frontal plane. Here, we describe the design, control, and preliminary evaluation of a novel exoskeleton, MINDWAL...
Conference Paper
This paper presents the Achilles exoskeleton, an autonomous ankle exoskeleton that can generate 52% of the positive plantarflexion power around the ankle of a 80 kg individual with only 1.5 kg of mass added around the ankle joint. The mass of the exoskeleton is lower and the power density is higher than that of existing autonomous exoskeletons. Thi...
Patent
Artificial hand suitable for robotic applications or as a prosthesis, comprising a frame with a thumb and at least two fingers, and having a motor drive for adjusting the thumb and the fingers with respect to the frame, wherein the motor drive has a housing and an axle which is rotatably positioned within the housing, and wherein the housing is mou...

Weight and power autonomy are limiting the daily use of wearable exoskeleton. Lightweight, efficient and powerful actuation system are not easy to achieve. Choosing the right combinations of existing technologies, such as battery, gear and motor is not a trivial task. In this paper, we propose an optimization framework by setting up a power-based q...

The Delft Hand 2 (DH-2) is an underactuated robot hand meant for industrial applications, having six degrees of freedom (DoF), one actuator (DoA) and no sensors. It was designed to provide a cheap and robust hand to grasp a large range of objects without damaging them. The goal of this paper is to assess the design and performance of the DH-2, demo...

There is a lack of agreement in the literature as to what exactly quantifies the performance of underactuated hands. This paper proposes two benchmark tests to measure the ability of underactuated hands to grasp different objects and the ability to hold the objects when force disturbances apply. The first test determines the smallest and largest cy...
