The CYBERnetic LowEr-Limb CoGnitive Ortho-prosthesis
Start date: Feb 1, 2012,
End date: Jan 31, 2015
The scientific and technological global goal of the CYBERLEGs project is the development of an artificial cognitive system for dysvascular trans-femoral amputees lower-limb functional replacement and assistance in activities of daily living. CYBERLEGs will be a robotic system constituted of an active cognitive artificial leg and a wearable active orthosis for assisting the contralateral sound limb. The system will be capable of high-level cognitive skills, and be interfaced to the amputee through a bi-directional interaction. CYBERLEGs will allow the amputee to walk back and forward, go up and down stairs, and move from sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit with a minimum cognitive and energetic effort.
