Abstract: MovAiD aims at developing a next generation of Movement Assistive Devices (MADs): innovative, “passive” and highly customized kineto-dynamic equipment, built to provide natural compensation of human movements of workers in manufacturing, elderly, children suffering from neuromuscular diseases and motion deficits. MADs will be conceived and developed exploiting a generative design approach (capable to combine unique morphological characteristics with personalized kinematics) coupled with an innovative additive multi-material technology (capable to deliver specific mechanical properties).
