Exoskeleton – part 4 of 6

ACTION OF WALKING

In this fourth blog post, we will try to briefly explain the human action of walking.

Human walking can be defined as a mode of bipedal locomotion with the alternating activity of the lower limbs. It differs from other activities, such as sprinting, in that at no time there is no support from the ground.

In the image below, you can see the sequence performed by a leg in a walking cycle. By common agreement, it is considered that the cycle begins when the right heel is in contact with the ground and ends when this happens again.

To carry out this project, measured data has been used based on real people during a walking cycle. The following images show the references of the angles and their values throughout the cycle.
