  • Huysamen, Kirsten; de Looze, Michiel P.; Bosch, Tim; Ortiz, Jesús; Toxiri, Stefano; O'Sullivan, Leonard (Elsevier, 2018)
    The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of an industrial exoskeleton on muscle activity, perceived musculoskeletal effort, measured and perceived contact pressure at the trunk, thighs and shoulders, and subjective ...
  • Di Natali, Christian; Poliero, Tommaso; Sposito, Matteo; Graf, Eveline; Bauer, Christoph; Pauli, Carole; Bottenberg, Eliza; de Eyto, Adam; O'Sullivan, Leonard; Hidalgo, Andrés F.; Scherly, Daniel; Stadler, Konrad S.; Caldwell, Darwin G.; Ortiz, Jesús (Cambridge University Press, 2019)
    Wearable devices are fast evolving to address mobility and autonomy needs of elderly people who would benefit from physical assistance. Recent developments in soft robotics provide important opportunities to develop soft ...
  • Koopman, Axel S.; Toxiri, Stefano; Power, Valerie; Kingma, Idsart; van Dieën, Jaap H.; Ortiz, Jesús; de Looze, Michiel P. (Elsevier, 2019)
    With mechanical loading as the main risk factor for LBP, exoskeletons (EXO) are designed to reduce the load on the back by taking over part of the moment normally generated by back muscles. The present study investigated ...
