This paper presents the modular design and control of a novel compliant lower limbmulti-joint exoskeleton for the rehabilitation of ankle kneemobility and locomotion of pediatric patients with neurological diseases, such as Cerebral Palsy (CP). The device consists of an untethered powered knee–ankle–foot orthosis (KAFO), addressed as WAKE-up (Wearable Ankle… CONTINUE READING
