Reviewing the Exoskeleton Expansion for Improving Walking & Running Economy

Research Paper Title The exoskeleton expansion: improving walking and running economy. Background Since the early 2000s, researchers have been trying to develop lower-limb exoskeletons that augment human mobility by reducing the metabolic cost of walking and running versus without a device. In 2013, researchers finally broke this ‘metabolic cost barrier’. The analysed the literature through… Read More


Can We Improve Human Walking Economy using an Autonomous Multi-Joint Soft Exosuit?

Research Paper Title Autonomous multi-joint soft exosuit with augmentation-power-based control parameter tuning reduces energy cost of loaded walking. Background Soft exosuits are a recent approach for assisting human locomotion, which apply assistive torques to the wearer through functional apparel. Over the past few years, there has been growing recognition of the importance of control individualisation… Read More
