In the many decades since researchers began to explore methods of creating them, active orthoses have progressed from complex research devices to nearly commercialized products. And while there are still many challenges associated with their development that have yet to be perfected, the advances in the field have been enormous. In this paper we review the history and discuss the state of the art of lower-limb active orthoses. We provide a design overview of hardware, actuation, sensory, and… CONTINUE READING
