Mechatronic system for increasing mobility of people with locomotor disability
Keywords:mechatronic system, parallelogram mechanism, kinematic analysis, motion trajectory, design, 3D model
This article presents research results on the concept and design of a mechatronic system for assistive mobility of people with locomotor disability. Component elements of the system have been designed and kinematic analysis of the parallelogram mechanism has been done, so that to have estimation of the end effector trajectory as Cartesian motion. Further development of research is envisaged to be on mechanism synthesis, system’s components optimization and prototyping.
