Kinetic Energy Recovery in Human Joints: The Flywheel-Infinitely Variable Transmission Actuator
In this extended abstract we present a novel architecture of an electric-mechanical actuator suitable for application to systems with periodic motion and here presented as an alternative to traditional actuators employed in wearable robots for lower limbs: the Flywheel - Infinitely Variable Transmission (F-IVT).
