Recent advances in materials and technology mean that the field of robotic exoskeletons is full of new and exciting potential. The purposes of and uses for exoskeletons are continually expanding, as is demonstrated in the series Robotic lower limb exoskeletons, edited by Dr Daniel Ferris and published in Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation.
Introduced by Dr Ferris’ commentary ‘The exoskeletons are here’, the nine articles in this series cover diverse topics ranging from robotic movement training after neurological injury, gait training after stroke, and energy harvesting exoskeletons that function by converting mechanical work at the knee into electrical energy.
Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation is overseen by Editor-in-Chief Paolo Bonato and a prestigious Editorial Board. For more information, please see the journals ‘About’ page.
