Spring-loaded ankle brace
A series elastic actuator is mounted on a standard polypropylene ankle foot orthosis (AFO). Its motor is controlled by a computer and takes decisions based on an adaptive control algorithm.
Ankle foot orthosis (AFO
The AFO is made to provide torque to the ankle joint during the push-off phase of gait. The motor actuates the spring that adjusts the ankle stiffness to prevent toe dragging.
