Abstract [en]

There is a need for soft assistive robotic devices such as prosthetics, exoskeletons and robot assistants. One particular area of interest is robotic exoskeletons to support the movement of body parts, e.g. assisting or enhancing walking and rehabilitation. Although technologically advanced, current exoskeletons are rigid and driven by electric motors or pneumatic actuators making them noisy, heavy, stiff and non-compliant. Ideally, assistive devices would be shaped as an exoskeleton suit worn under clothing and well-hidden. By merging one of humankind oldest technology with one of the latest, that is by combining knitting and weaving with novel electroactive polymers, we have developed soft textile actuators ("Knitted Muscles"). In this paper we will present the textile actuators in more detail as well as share the latest progress in the development of textile actuators for soft robotics.
