MetadataShow full item record
The L.E.G. combines the inherent mechanical support of a knee brace with extra assistance provided in a similar way as a robotic leg. Surface Electromyography (SEMG) sensors are connected to the user’s leg to assess in what direction the brace should assist the user. In addition to providing assistive and resistive features for the user’s physical benefit, there is an option for the user to send the voltage data of the L.E.G. to a computer via Bluetooth and display the results in a VI executable.
