This paper addresses attention to a design for an exoskeleton used on human locomotion purposes in case of people with neuromotor disorders. The design core is focused on two planar-parallel mechanisms implementation at the knee and ankle joints level of each leg exoskeleton. Thus, numerical simulations for the design process were carried out in order to validate the engineering feasibility of the proposed leg exoskeleton.
