    People with impaired human motor control may be disabled in the performance of daily activities. Their motor control performance may be supported by ambulatory artificial motor control systems that are body-worn and exchange information with the human body. Exchange of information can be achieved at the level of the neural system, muscles activation, interface forces with the environment and body movements. Such motor support systems may not only be relevant in the case of impaired motor control but can also assist healthy people in performing tasks under high loading. This paper describes the general concept of these systems and several examples of applications which are investigated.
