Abstract

Hybrid control of walking aims blending robotic exoskeletons and electrical stimulation to overcome the drawbacks of each while preserving their advantages. In this article, a hybrid cooperative control strategy is presented. We present experimental results in healthy subjects, showing the controller ability to balance power contribution among exoskeleton and muscle stimulation.
