Passive Exoskeleton for Sit-To-Stand and Stand-To-Sit Transfer
Imagine the possibility of a cure for one of the most prevalent problems associated with aging. Numerous individuals experience difficulty getting out of bed, sitting, or performing normal tasks due to weak knees. This issue also affects manual laborers who may be compelled to change careers or retire as a result of the strenuous repetitive nature of their work. The purpose of this semester’s project is to continue building, testing, and improving a portable, lightweight, low-profile passive leg exoskeleton that supports the legs and knees to assist in standing up from a kneeling position or lowering oneself to a sitting position.
