Abstract- In the nearly six decades since researchers began to explore methods of creating exoskeletons, have progressed from the stuff of science fiction to nearly commercialized products.. While there are still many challenges associated with exoskeleton development that have yet to be perfected, the advances in the field have been enormous. In this paper, we discuss the design challenges of exoskeletons and active orthoses. We provide a design overview of hardware, actuation, sensory, and control systems for most of the devices that have been described in the literature, and end with the hurdles yet to be overcome
