ANT-M: Design of Passive Lower-Limb Exoskeleton for Weight-Bearing Assistance in Industry
This study describes the optimized design of a passive lower limb exoskeleton for workers in the industry. The exoskeleton is aimed at helping workers who carry heavy loads, by supporting their posture and reducing stress in their knees which would prevent future injuries. However, most of the previous passive designs are insufficient in a way that they are bulky. Therefore, this study is focused on achieving lightweight passive exoskeleton. Topology optimization has been carried out to reach this goal. The results are validated using finite elements methods, in ANSYS environment.
