This report presents the development of a research tool for the Biomechanical Engineering (BME) department of the Universty of Twente. The main goal of the presented project is to develop an hydrostatic actuated ankle exoskeleton. A frontal actuated ankle exoskeleton with a passive return was designed. The device counted with two hydraulic cylinders to assist plantarflexion and two mechanical springs as return elements.Once finish the physical prototype was tested using two different… CONTINUE READING
