Abstract

Exoskeletons flourished in early 1960s which was used for heavy lifting purpose. Many exoskeletons are developed and are being developed for load carrying purpose. The major parameters to be considered are design and power source. This paper emphasizes about the approach for design of upper limb part of exoskeleton and analysis of the designed limb. In the ends there are discussions of actuators to be used and their relative force for actuation and also about the results and future developments.
