— In complex dynamical tasks human motor control notably exploits the possibility of regulating joints mechanical impedance, both for stability and for energetic optimization purposes. These biomechanical findings should translate in design requirements for wearable robotics joints, which are required to produce adaptable intrinsic viscoelastic behaviors.(More)
Wearable robots, i.e. active orthoses, exoskeletons, and mechatronic prostheses, represent a class of biomechatronic systems posing severe constraints in terms of safety and controllability. Additionally, whenever the worn system is required to establish a well-tuned dynamic interaction with the human body, in order to exploit emerging dynamical behaviours,(More)
