Abstract

In this paper, the authors present a novel system for rehabilitation of patients with limited motion capability. The approach is based on a hybrid system, which combines an exoskeleton robots (ER) and a motor neuroprosthesis (MNP), combined with a partial body weight support system (REMOVI platform). An analysis of user-system interactions forces in vertical component is performed in order to extract gait parameters to guide the REMOVI platform.
