NEUROEXOS is an elbow exoskeleton developed by Scuola Supereriore Sant'Anna (Pisa, Italy)
which implements a 4-DOF passive mechanism to allign the rotation axes of human and robot joints.
It has been recently presented to Ability Channel, a web TV that is especially dedicated
to sport events for people with disabilities. Watch the video
HANDEXOS is an exoskeletal device for hand rehabilitation and/or functional assistance.
It has been designed for ensure high comfort and address full kinematics compatibility
with human hand. Watch the video to see how it works
CYBERLEGs, acronym for “The CYBERnetic Lower-Limb Cognitive Ortho-prosthesis”,
is a Collaborative Research project funded by the European Commission under the 7th
Framework Programme. The Consortium, which is composed of five partners from
three different EU Countries, is coordinated by NICOLA VITIELLO, from The
BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy.
The CYBERLEGs project started on February 1, 2012.
SUMMARY & FIGURES
The scientific and technological global goal of the CYBERLEGs project is the
development of an artificial cognitive system for dysvascular trans-femoral amputees’
lower-limb functional replacement and assistance in activities of daily living.
CYBERLEGs will be a robotic system constituted of an active cognitive artificial leg
for the functional replacement of the amputated limb and a wearable active orthosis
for assisting the contralateral sound limb...
The aim of the CYBERLEGs project is to develop an artificial cognitive system for trans-femoral amputees’ lower-limb functional replacement and assistance. CYBERLEGs wants to research ways of cognitive control, motivated and validated trough the ortho-prosthesis scenario, of a multi-degree-of-freedom system with both lower-limb replacing and assistive capacities. The project will develop know-how on how human can interface a semi-autonomous robotic device which supports the amputee in executing locomotion-related tasks (e.g. walking, stairs climbing), including transients (e.g. start, stop, sit-to-stand, etc. …), in a real life unstructured environment. Research activities within CYBERLEGs aim at pursuing metabolic, cognitive and energy efficiency...
