Abstract

This paper presents a robotic exoskeleton which assists shoulder internal-external rotation motion as well as shoulder vertical and horizontal flexion-extension motion of physically weak persons such as elderly, injured, or disabled persons. The exoskeleton is supposed to be directly attached to the user and activated mainly based on user's electromyogram (EMG) signals, which directly reflect the user's motion intention, in order to realize natural power assist. Fuzzy control is applied to realize sophisticated real-time control. Experiment has been performed to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed exoskeleton.
