Abstract

The wearable exoskeleton robot adjusts the sitting posture of the person through mechanical structure, helping people to reduce some unnecessary diseases caused by poor sitting posture. It is mainly suitable for people who are already hunchback or who have not yet hunched. The purpose is to adjust the sitting posture to improve the hunchback and prevent the occurrence of hunchback. Wearable exoskeleton sitting assist is a sitting adjustment device designed for people who are not sitting in a standard position. The main purpose of this design is to correct the sitting posture of the seated person or to prevent the spine from bending back due to the sitting posture. This topic is designed to meet the human body’s artificial spinal structure by learning the characteristics of the spine and hunchback, and to learn and summarize the existing similar products. Use solidworks to model the external bone structure in three dimensions to determine the feasibility of the organization. Mechanical analysis of each mechanical structure is carried out to ensure the safety of the mechanism. Finally, use Arduino to control its equipment, write programs, and complete the design of the entire device.
