The article presents a multiparametric system for the measurement of selected physical
variables required to control the exoskeleton developed at the Biomechanics Lab of
the Military Institute of Aviation Medicine. The control of this type of devices is a very
complex problem. It requires precise measurements being taken from kinematic segments
of both the human wearing the exoskeleton and the exoskeleton itself. The key
issues aff ecting the quality of exoskeleton control include the selection of the optimum
number of sensors and optimum locations for sensors, as well as the interpretation of
physical quantities measured by these sensors.
