Simulation Techniques and Control Schemes in Electromyography for a Lower Limb and Power Assist Exoskeleton


Ngoc Khoat Nguyen and Thi Mai Phuong Dao

This paper represents the first part of our work in which a successful exoskeleton system has been designed. With this design, the concentration is on effects of compliant human exoskeleton robot on kinematics and muscle activity during human walking with or without carrying loads. In order to achieve these aims, two control methods are used: kinematic and surface electromyography (sEMG) based control. In this article, three simulation techniques of sEMG signal are investigated. The obtained results of this work are very useful in designing and testing our actual exoskeleton system.

Keywords: exoskeleton, robot, sEMG, simulation, control
