This paper reports on the mechanical design of an active knee orthosis, powered by pleated pneumatic artificial muscles. The orthosis is intended as a proof-of-concept rehabilitation device for the assessment of mechatronical design principles and testing of different control strategies. The general focus of this research is on the development of a step rehabilitation robot prototype consisting of a powered exoskeleton for the lower limbs.
