This paper presents the design of a compliant, lightweight and adaptable active ankle foot orthosis (AAFO) and preliminary test of its ankle actuator. The ankle actuator is designed to keep its weight as low as possible. The adaptability of the AAFO allows adjusting the device to different patients, without the need of customized versions.
