Customized robot aided gait training for neurorehabilitation

Shahid Hussain, Sheng Q. Xie

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


An intrinsically compliant robotic orthosis was developed to provide customized robot assisted gait training for the neurorehabilitaion of stroke and spinal cord injured (SCI) subjects. The robotic orthosis is powered by pneumatic muscle actuators (PMA). A control scheme was developed that can guide the subject’s limbs on reference trajectories as well as can provide variable compliance. The control scheme was evaluated on a neurologically intact subject and the results show that the control scheme can deliver its intended effect.
