Dataset for validation of a new magnetic field-based wearable breathing sensor (MAG), which uses the movement of the chest wall as a surrogate measure of respiratory activity. Based on the principle of variation in magnetic field strength with the distance from the source, this system explores Hall effect sensing, paired with a permanent magnet, embedded in a chest strap.

Previous studies of robotic leg prostheses and exoskeletons with regenerative actuators have focused almost exclusively on level-ground walking applications. Here we analyzed the lower-limb joint mechanical work and power during stand-to-sit movements using inverse dynamics to estimate the biomechanical energy theoretically available for electrical energy regeneration and storage. Nine subjects performed 20 sitting and standing movements while lower-limb kinematics and ground reaction forces were experimentally measured.
