Abstract

Exo-Skeletons are known as constructions that cover the exterior of the bionic body and give more strength or power to it when it is needed. As it can be understood from various researches and investments for such projects, this concept is highly important and necessary for many cases. From military to medical and civilian applications, exo-skeletal suits or in another word, wearable robots, are very useful for making lives easier.

Along with the improvements in physical programming platforms such as Arduinos, experimenting and developing such exo-skeletal systems have become much easier. As a result of the combination of an ergonomic and comfortable physical design and simple yet effective coding, a complicated and useful project will be implemented that uses electrical signals taken from muscles, instead of an ordinary exo-skeletal arm.
