Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach for describing the functioning of an active elbow orthosis with the use of generalized nets modeling. The so proposed model will permit the development of user-oriented control of sEMG- powered elbow orthosis. We propose an abstract model based on the “on-off” myoelectric control, appropriate for maximum two degrees of freedom in the elbow joint.
