Short abstract and comments

The main objective of this project is the development of an exoskeleton for the lower limbs. It includes the development of a portable system for online monitoring of EMG signals in the lower limbs. The system is composed of standard gel or textile EMG electrodes attached to a compact box with a mini-computer with Wi-Fi connection and a custom signal acquisition board.

Potential uses/indications

Trauma; Rehabilitation.

Status

Ongoing

Partner Status: Seeking Partners?
