In this thesis work is reported the functional design of novel wearable robots that exceed the scientific knowledge by expanding the portfolio of machines/robots for rehabilitation, walking assistance and many other features for human assistance.<br>In particular, we will go into the detail of a hand exoskeleton fully powered by miniaturized SEA actuators with also a new kinematic architecture for the thumb joint (patent pending).<br>In this dissertation work is reported also a new exoskeleton for rehabilitation of the shoulder and elbow in post-stroke patient. This is portable and fixable on the wheelchair and it is for double side use (patent pending).<br>In this thesis work, we will go into the details also through the design of a new wearable full body robot for the assistance of operators during their lifting task at work. (several patent pending).<br>Finally, we will also talk about a novel concept of an underactuated transfemoral prosthesis (several patent pending).
