Exoskeleton can be defined as "wearable, external mechanical structure" whose objective is to reinforce or restore the physical performance of the person. The exoskeletons are placed on the user’s body and can be classified into two categories:
• Passive: This kind of exoskeleton does not use any type of electrical power source. On the other hand, these are constituted with mechanisms as springs, dampers or high-pressure springs. It can be used for weight re-distribution or energy capture to support the users with the posture or motion.
• Active: unlike passive exoskeletons, active exoskeletons do use some type of actuator which in- creases human power. This actuator can be an electric motor, pneumatic muscles or hydraulic power.
