Abstract
Robotic gait training after spinal cord injury (SCI) is of high priority to maximize independence and improve the living conditions of these patients. Current rehabilitation robots are expensive and heavy, and are generally found only in the clinic. To overcome these issues, we present the design of a low-cost, low-weight robotic orthosis for subjects with SCI. The paper also presents a preliminary experimental evaluation of the assistive device on a subject with SCI. Results show that gait velo...
