Abstract

We have developed a pneumatically assist system for human walk who has handicap. The assist system supports the leg force by using pneumatic linear actuators when he desires to stretch his knee. This system is composed by two parts, i.e., an orthosis supported by portable actuator as source of power, and the shoes in which a weight sensor was embeded.
