AbstractExoskeletons are becoming a very powerful tool to help therapists in the rehabilitation of patients who have suffered from neurological conditions, in particular stroke or spinal cord injury. This work presents a robotic exoskeleton designed to assist overground gait training for patients with deficits in gait coordination. The device is a bilateral exoskeleton with six degrees of freedom. It is designed to implement different control strategies. An adaptive trajectory control has been developed to guide the patient’s limb within a desired path, allowing a deviation based on torque of interaction between the user and the exoskeleton. An admittance control strategy allows the robotic platform to capture the user’s movements during assistive training and to replicate them during active training. Experimental results show that the exoskeleton can adapt a pre-recorded gait pattern to the gait pattern of a specific user. Future investigations will evaluate the device in the rehabilitation of patients who have suffered from stroke. A comparative analysis of the effectiveness of different robotic therapies will be proposed.
