This proposed project is a lower limb exoskeleton that is design and develop for rehabilitation while the safety rules and regulation is kept in mind. The developed exoskeleton is made up of purely rehabilitation kits such hip and knee orthoses kits so that users can comfortably wear and do rehabilitation of flexion and extension. The idea is to use inertial measurement unit (IMU) and electromyography (EMG) as a sensor devices where the algorithm is developed to actuate the motors attached at the hip and knee joints from the sensors collected data. The control of the system is done by using Arduino microcontroller where the right lower limb assumed to unsound limb and left lower limb assumed to be sound limb, where from the sensors attached at left sound limb mimic the movement for the right unsound limb.
