Adaptive knee orthosis robot for walking correction

 Exoskeletal wearable robots which assist or correct human exercise can improve QOL(Quality Of Life), raise performance in work place and efficiency in rehabilitation.

 We developed a knee orthosis robot actuated by pneumatic artificial muscles. By making subject's knee imitate opposite knee movement with it, the subject fulfilled balanced walking. It will be applied to different exercise and subjects next.

 And we evaluate not only kinematic performance but also influence to the subject with EMG(Electromyogram) data of lower-limb muscles.
