Interactive Exoskeleton Robot for Walking - Knee Joint

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

An exoskeleton robotic knee system for stroke rehabilitation is proposed in this study. This robotic system has been developed to facilitate functional motor recovery by practices walking with a one joint motor powered exoskeleton to reduce the muscle weakness in the shank and reduce the hyperextension in the knee joint. The robotic knee system is able to sense the gait pattern from the stroke patients and assist the walking and control the knee angle. The clinical trial will use repeated measurements to evaluate the effectiveness of the robotic knee system in gait rehabilitation post stroke.
