Abstract
Simulation of walking in individuals with incomplete spinal cord injuries (SCI) wearing an active orthosis is a challenging problem from both the analytical and the computational points of view, due to the redundant nature of the simultaneous actuation of the two systems. The objective of this work is to quantify the contributions of muscles and active orthosis to the net joint torques, so as to assist the design of active orthoses for SCI. The functional innervated muscles of SCI patients were ...
