	%X Walking and sit to stand are activities carried out by
all the people many times during the day, but physical disabilities due
to age and diseases create needs of assistive devices to help elderly
people during their daily life. This study aims to study the different
types and mechanisms of the assistive devices. We will analyze the
limitations and the challenges faced by the researchers in this field.
We will introduce the Assistive Device developed at the Egypt-Japan
University of Science and Technology, named E-JUST Assistive
Device (EJAD). EJAD will be a low cost intelligent assistive device
to help elders in walking and sit-to-stand activities.
