EduExo – The Hardware to Assemble and Program an Elbow Exoskeleton

$329.00

The EduExo enables students, hobbyists, and educators to learn and teach about exoskeleton technology. The do-it-yourself kit contains all the parts and components needed to assemble an elbow exoskeleton. In addition, a comprehensive handbook teaches theoretical knowledge. It contains a manual on assembling the hardware, designing primary controllers, and using the exoskeleton as an input device for a self-made video game.

The EduExo allows anyone to obtain essential knowledge about robotic exoskeletons. It can be used at home by individuals but also facilitate teaching in schools and universities. You will learn about topics ranging from hardware design and electronics to control theory and game design. In addition, the handbook contains all the information you need to assemble the exoskeleton and program basic control strategies.

EduExo – The Hardware to Assemble and Program an Elbow Exoskeleton

The EduExo 2.0 contains the hardware to assemble and program an elbow exoskeleton. In the box, you will find a microcontroller, sensors, plastic parts, textile cuffs, a motor, and many smaller parts such as cables, plugs, and screws. To assemble it, you need a few tools, such as screwdrivers, a soldering iron, and a PC to program it.

Handbook Content
​The EduExo 2.0 handbook comprises seven main chapters, each introducing you to state-of-the-art exoskeleton technology. All chapters have a theoretical part that teaches you in-depth knowledge about exoskeletons. In addition, most chapters have a tutorial section that guides you through the assembly and programming steps to build your exoskeleton with the hardware provided in the box.

​Chapter 1: Introduction
The first chapter introduces the field of robotic exoskeletons – examining exoskeleton history, examples of existing systems, their functionality, and their applications.

​Chapter 2: Anatomy and Mechanics:
The third chapter covers the basics of human functional anatomy and exoskeleton mechanics. It then gets hands-on with a tutorial on assembling the EduExo Pro.

​Chapter 3: Electronics
This chapter teaches the basic electronics knowledge and skills needed to connect all EduExo Pro’s electronic parts safely.

​Chapter 4: Software
This chapter covers the software that turns the mechanical exoskeleton into a robotic exoskeleton. In addition, it contains source code examples for all exoskeleton core functions.

​Chapter 5: Basic Control Systems
Chapter seven introduces control systems. Different controllers that define the exoskeleton-user interaction are introduced, discussed, implemented, and tested.

​Chapter 6: Advanced Control Systems
The control system’s most important task is to ensure that it provides support when needed. To do so, the user’s movement intention and physical load are valuable information. They can be estimated using muscle activity.

​Chapter 7: Virtual Reality & Video Games
Virtual Realities and Video Games can be used with exoskeletons. They are, for example, used to increase motivation in patients who use exoskeletons for rehabilitation, e.g., after a stroke. In this chapter, we create our video game and use EduExo as a game controller and feedback device.
