Structural Analysis of Exoskeleton Model through Human Synchronization Parameters

Rahul R., Tanishq Philip Alexander, Rinkkhesh V., Vikram H.
Abstract—Exoskeleton is a mobile machine integrated with human movements used for applications where it is difficult for humans to handle. Exoskeletons alongside humans breach the revolutionary gap boundary between them. This research paper deals with design solutions for aiding limb module of a powered limb exoskeleton used for handling heavy work load in work-place. An optimal design approach is applied for exoskeletons based on correlations between exoskeleton and limbs in human body. This paper focuses on the various issues with human-centered approach and addressing the problems of physical human–exoskeleton interactions and dealing with everyday scenarios. Initially, a conceptual model was designed and then it was updated to the final design output. Appropriate material selection was done and production of the suit alongside assembly of pneumatic actuators was done. Test analysis was done to check for overall efficiency and conclusion was derived. This paper emphasis on framing the various aspects of design phases in an exoskeleton and provides possible usage of exoskeletons in everyday scenarios. The basic idea behind this research is to conclude on the importance of exo-suits for the future needs.
