Title
(EN) EXOSKELETON SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF USE
(FR) SYSTÈMES D'EXOSQUELETTE ET PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN) An exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure provides a knee exoskeleton comprising a first interface, a second interface, an actuator, and a controller. The first interface can be configured to interface with a portion of a leg of a user above a knee joint of the user. The second interface can be configured to interface with a portion of the leg of the user below the knee joint of the user. The actuator can be configured to generate a torque to cause a movement of at least one of the first and second interfaces. The controller can be configured to control the actuator to vary the magnitude of torque generated by the actuator.
(FR) Un mode de réalisation donné à titre d'exemple de la présente divulgation concerne un exosquelette de genou comprenant une première interface, une seconde interface, un actionneur et un dispositif de commande. La première interface peut être conçue pour servir d'interface avec une partie d'une jambe d'un utilisateur au-dessus d'une articulation du genou de l'utilisateur. La seconde interface peut être conçue pour servir d'interface avec une partie de la jambe de l'utilisateur sous l'articulation du genou de l'utilisateur. L'actionneur peut être conçu pour générer un couple afin de provoquer un mouvement d'au moins l'une des première et seconde interfaces. Le dispositif de commande peut être conçu pour ordonner à l'actionneur de faire varier l'amplitude du couple généré par l'actionneur.
