Determining the Range of Impedance Parameters for Ankle Exoskeletons

This research is being done to find a validated measure of comfort for an ankle exoskeleton. An ankle exoskeleton is a robot that attaches to a person’s ankle to provide them with extra strength. Participants will be asked to walk in ankle exoskeleton and give feedback on how comfortable they felt several times using a survey. Each time, the ankle exoskeleton will behave differently. Participants' feedback will be used to assess the validity of the survey.
