Description

This paper describes the development of Physical Modelling of Series Elastic Actuator for Active Ankle-Foot Orthosis by using Simscape Multibody Link. Active Ankle-Foot Orthosis is essential that can be used for the rehabilitation process to the patient. It is useful in medicine to help a patient who loses their walking ability, due to ankle weakness, to regain the walking ability. This project focuses on the design, simulate and physical modelling for Ankle-Foot Orthosis. This project was used Solidworks as a platform to design the Active Ankle-Foot Orthosis and using MatLab/Simulink for simulation by using Simscape Multibody Link tools. The Active Ankle-Foot Orthosis moves in 2 basic movement of ankle that is dorsiflexion and plantar flexion for rehabilitation. So, this project focuses on the physical modelling for the Series Elastic Actuator that drives the ankle movement mimicking the normal gait cycle.
