The C-Brace is a knee only exoskeleton.  It is a medical orthotic device that monitors the swing phase of the leg and provides actuation at the knee.


According to the manufacturer, the C-Brace opens up unforeseen possibilities in the field of neuro-orthopaedics.  Thanks to the embedded sensors in the wearable, the system controls both the stance and swing phase in real time.   This way, the C-Brace is able to optimize the gait pattern in every single phase.

The C-Brace is a tremendous improvement over similar braces that simply lock the knee.
