Title On the Energetics of the Walking Gait of a Human Operator Using a Passive Exoskeleton Apparatus
Author(s) E.K. Lavrovskii (Institute of Mechanics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Michurinskii pr. 1, Moscow, 119192 Russia,
Abstract We study the energy expenditures and the peak values of control torques which a human operator must apply in the process of exoskeleton displacement for various types of regular, plane, and single-support gaits. The obtained results allow us to estimate the performance of the passive exoskeleton apparatus.
Keywords passive exoskeleton, regular motion, energy expenditure, maxima of control torques
