Abstract: This paper presents the development of a prototype of an active orthosis for lower limbs. The proposed orthosis is an orthopedical device with the main objective of providing walking capacity to people with partial or total loss of limbs movements. In order to design the kinematics, dynamics and the mechanical characteristics of the prototype, the biomechanics of the human body was analized. The orthosis was projected to reproduce the movements of human gait. The movements of the joints of the orthosis are controlled by DC motors equipped with mechanical reductions, whose purpose is to reduce rotational speed and increase the torque, thus generating smooth movements. An embedded electronic system for sensory data acquisition and motor control was projected. The gait movements of the orthosis will be controlled by high level commands from a human-machine interface based on processings of electroencephalogram signals, speech recognition or joystick
