Falling is a major cause of morbidity, and is often caused by a decrease in postural stability. A key component of postural stability is whole-body centroidal angular momentum, which can be influenced by control moment gyroscopes. In this proof-of-concept study, we explore the influence of our wearable robotic gyroscopic actuator “GyroPack” on...

Building upon recent advancements in linear electroadhesive clutch materials and performance, this paper examines the feasibility of a self-reinforcing electroadhesive rotational clutch using a simple model. The design aims to deliver improvements in applications where performance is limited by the torque-to-power and torque-to-mass ratios...

Wearable robots assist individuals with sensorimotor impairment in daily life, or support industrial workers in physically demanding tasks. In such scenarios, low mass and compact design are crucial factors for device acceptance. Remote actuation systems (RAS) have emerged as a popular approach in wearable robots to reduce perceived weight...

In this letter we demonstrate a pneumatic bending actuator for upper-limb assistive wearable robots which uses thin McKibben muscles in combination with a flexure strip. The actuator features both active soft actuation and passive gravity support, and in terms of force transmission bridges the gap between the classic rigid type actuators and...

Recognising the user’s locomotive intentions is crucial for the correct functionality of exoskeletons and active orthoses. For gait applications, extrapolating control inputs from the arm swing may be worthwhile, since arm oscillations naturally occur during human locomotion. A similar method would be unaffected by severe impairments of the...

Gyroscopic actuation is appealing for wearable applications due to its ability to impart free moments on a body without exoskeletal structures on the joints.We recently proposed an unobtrusive balancing aid consisting of multiple parallelmounted control moment gyroscopes (CMGs) contained within a backpack-like orthopedic corset. Using...

A minimalistic robotic device for aiding persons with degraded balancing ability was recently proposed, employing a number of single-gimbal control moment gyroscopes (CMGs) mounted to a backpack-like orthopedic corset. Once a fall is detected, the device must track a predefined moment profile to bring the subject upright or else slow the fall...
