Recently, exoskeletons have been in the spotlight as many studies demonstrated the effectiveness of the exoskeletons as a means that enables to not only resolve long-standing issues such as increase of societal burden for the care of ageing populations but also augments productivity in several fields, such as rehabilitation and industrial fields. In particular, lower limb exoskeletons have attracted the medical field, especially related to the ageing society due to its impact on augmentation and recovery of walking capability which is one of the core determinants of independent daily living. For practical use of the lower limb exoskeletons in real environments, however, there are still several issues to be resolved. One of them is how to manage balance of human walking supported by the exoskeleton, in other words, how to monitor walking stability of a system combined with human and exoskeleton and maintain (or recover) the system balance when the user meets unpredicted disturbances, and ...
