This Wearable Robotic Leg Has a Powered Knee and Ankle Joints That Mimics a Human Leg

Georgia Tech Mechanical Engineering professors Greg Sawicki and Aaron Young have developed a wearable robotic leg prosthesis that is a two-joint device with a powered knee and ankle joints. It combines a “human-machine interface and control systems” with the “neuromechanics and energetics of human locomotion” – and how movement can be enhanced with wearable technology.
