Abstract

Assistive technology forecasts better autonomy for people with lifelong disabilities and for the elderly facing motor decline. As the population of developed countries is becoming greyer, there is thus a high probability of observing a significant increase in the demand for assistive locomotion devices. Designing the controller for such devices is not trivial, and requires both to set up a compliant framework and to manage the cross adaptation between the device and its user (the so-called interface). Taking inspiration from neuromechanical principles governing human locomotion is an approach which is currently investigated by several groups to address these challenges.
