New Practice for Lower Extremity Exoskeleton Locomotion Transitions

1. Scope

Description of a set of artifacts used together in an obstacle course to enable evaluation of human-exoskeleton transitions between artifacts. Inclusive of suggested metrics of performance.


stairs; ramps; obstacles; user preference; performance metrics


Current standards and exoskeleton evaluations typically evaluate one artifact at a time and look at steady state performance. This practice supports combining artifacts together to examine transitions between tasks.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
