The aim of this work is the development and testing of a reduced scale exoskeleton robot able to reproduce the human walk. Arduino Mega has been employed as hardware to actuate the control on two different versions of 3D printed prototypes. The control is based on receiving commands from a Bluetooth application, which has been developed thanks to Android Studio. The commands are interpreted by a code written with the help of the Arduino IDE, while to read real time data a simple java tool has been used. The telemetry can be saved and with the help of Matlab graphs can be analysed. The final purpose of the project is to verify if the mechanical structure in analysis can be employed as a biomedical device, to support the rehabilitation of patients affected by motion disabilities. Testing the system has been verified the structure potentiality to simulate the walk of a human while carrying himself.
