The combined use of the functional electrical stimulation (FES) with robotic devices known as Hybrid Robotic System emerges as a promising solution to improve rehabilitation therapies after neurological injuries (e.g. stroke). This work presents a first step towards the implementation of a Hybrid Robotic System simulation platform that could allow exploring several control strategies to improve its performance. The results show the feasibility of the platform to deploy several control strategies that combines FES and robotic devices.
