Top 3 Lower Limb Exoskeletons

Exoskeletons are necessarily a dream comes true for many people with restricted mobility and especially lower limb exoskeletons create a greater possibility of independent walking. In this post, let’s familiarize and review the top three exoskeletons made for lower limb assistance.

Atalante Self-Governing Lower-Body Robotic Exoskeleton

Atalante: Designed by French company Wandercraft, this Exoskeleton is for patients suffering from locomotor disabilities suffered from stroke, neuromuscular diseases, or spinal cord injuries. This Robotic exoskeleton is a hands-free, self-balancing lower limb exoskeleton. Atalanta is used by health care centers for walk rehabilitation, the device frees the upper limbs and trunk of the patient making it adaptive. Patients walking with this device need not to learn to balance with crutches they can just immediately carry on with their daily life activities. This device can reestablish movement in patients with adjustable assistance enabling them to complete preprogrammed activities, encouraging patient’s engagement and neuroplasticity. 

This Atalante Robotic exoskeleton allows people with a severe walking impairment to stand up and walk during rehabilitation exercises.  Its fully powered hip-knee-ankle exoskeleton with additional propulsion at the hips for a total of 12 activated degrees of freedom. 6 on each leg. Step length, step duration, pelvis roll and pelvis pitch are the four walk parameters that experiments explored. It is a self-balancing system with a dynamic walking control reducing power consumption and providing a more natural pace. 

Atalante allows intensive, early and repeated treatment, reducing physical and mental strain on both patients and therapists. 

HANK: Gogoa’s Robotic exoskeleton

Gogoa Mobility Robots develops HANK, a lower limb exoskeleton system which is an affordable and effective solution to increase the quality of movement. Hank is designed to aid rehabilitation for adults who are suffering from neurological injuries. The device HANK is used to aid the patients to walk again as a part of their physical therapy who have a paralyzed lower limb after a spinal cord injury. This system is the first of its kind to have a motorized ankles allowing the user a more natural range of motion. This system has a 6% of freedom, its lightweight, has a strong aluminum 7075 structure, the total weight of the device including its battery is about 12kg. 

This is the first CE Mark exoskeleton to be approved for clinical use. 

ATLAS 2030 Pediatric Exoskeleton

ATLAS 2030 by Marsi Bionics is a pediatric exoskeleton for many neuromuscular conditions suffered by kids aged 4 to 10 years. This Pediatric Exoskeleton helps children suffering from spinal cord injury from muscular atrophy, muscular dystrophy, and myopathies are a few to mention.  This ATLAS device supports the child from the trunk to the feet with 8 active joints. It provides three-dimensional mobility in 3D directions. Its dimensions can be changed or adjusted easily depending on the child’s growth. It can be easily worn in minutes, it’s auxiliary frame which is attached to the exoskeleton guarantees child’s safety providing the pleasure of walking independently. 

All those above-mentioned Robotic devices can help persons who require or are willing to reboot their suspended life can be helped by these Robotic Assistance.
