Rep-Rap Open Source Human Walking Assistance O.s.h.w.a
Get blue prints available to allow for the non-ambulatory and the near non-ambulatory… to walk using Rep-Rap printed devices that are slotted for servos, and run some sort of UNIX Linux or blender to control the system, or anything open source really that has a Ui that can be used, as well as a physics engine and script language,
Using a “walk cycle” similar to 3d animation “Key frames” application of forces can be cycled, these cycles could be adjusted in real time,
this could allow for walking dynamically with high stability if a real time displacement of a “Ground plane” that the solver decides on “targeting” a walking step position, and then does it…
This will take hours of tinkering, and days of thoughts, and possibly a lot of adjustment over time after it is done,
Who is with me?
It looks like my wife my have ALS, or some other similar muscle wasting disease, and helping her could help everyone…
