  Abstract                 = {The design of robotic orthoses focuses strongly on replicating kinematics of human limb. However, often sophisticated mechanisms which attempt at reproducing complex kinematics of human joints fails in adapting to geometrical variations of subjects sizes and eccentricities. One major that arises from this mismatching is an occurrence of hyperstaticity induced by the uncontrolled interaction forces. In this paper, we take the point of view of statics to investigate the force transmission problem, which is required for a fine force control. The main result of this study focuses on designing fixations between the orthosis and the human limb that provide additional degrees of freedom. The method involves two steps. Firstly, a set of possible solutions with respect to the isostaticity criterion is derived. Then, among these possible solutions, a set of design rules considering physiological aspects of transmitting forces to human limbs is used to select a preferred configuration. As an example, the method is applied to an existing 4 active DOF arm orthosis.},
