Abstract

This project deals with movement of an arm by the use of an exoskeleton. an exoskeleton is an external structural mechanism with joints and links corresponding to those of the human body.” In other words, designing the kinematics of an exoskeleton generally consists of trying to replicate human limb kinematics. The challenge is to build an exoskeleton system that is inexpensive, streamlined, and wireless. Our solution is unique in that it will be a low-cost, ergonomic device actuated through sensors measuring the user’s motion. The exoskeleton arm support system will help the user lift additional weight for day to day activities that the user is not normally able to lift. We have outlined the process of developing an exoskeleton arm which increases the load lifting capacity of a human. The potential applications would be in diverse fields such as defense, physiotherapy and manufacturing. Each year, thousands of workers must take leave due to injuries triggered by heavy lifting; with augmented strength, workers could avoid harmful situations.
