The Active Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AAFO) [41], Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthosis (KAFO), Berkley Lower Extremity Exoskeleton (BLEEX), and Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) belong to the leg orthoses and exoskeletons.
Kazerooni of the University of California-Berkeley [44] designed the lower-limb exoskeleton robot BLEEX (Berkeley Lower Extremity Exoskeleton), and designers called it "weight-bearing and energy independent exoskeleton." According to the force of the exoskeleton, the inverse dynamic model of the exoskeleton is used as the feed-forward controller and the joint angle sensor is used to judge the movement period of each leg and control the coordinated movement of the exoskeleton.

The Bleex uses a network of over 40 hydraulic actuators and sensors that determine the movements of the user.
