The paper briefly discusses the history of artificial limbs and describes present prosthetics, exoskeletons and robotic rehabilitation. The challenges in prosthetics and exoskeletons - which include electromechanical implementation, neural control signals and extraction of intent, and clinical interface - are also discussed. In the future, the need for assistive robotic devices is predicted to increase
