It has been established that a suitably designed unpowered mechanical biped may \walk" down an inclined plane all by itself and eventually acquire a stable periodic gait. The characteristics of this periodic gait (e.g., velocity, time period) depend on the geometry of the biped and the slope of the plane. The energy to maintain the periodic motion comes(More)
Using microsensors for the robust and accurate analysis of human posture or gait is an interesting opportunity for rehabilitation and robotics applications. This paper describes a feasibility study in which the possibility of using a new type of embedded microsensors, based on the coupling of accelerometers and magnetometers, and developed by CEA/LETI is(More)
Bipedal walking is a quasi-cyclic activity where the movements of the ipsilateral leg and contralateral leg are time shifted for 50 percent of the gait cycle. Hemiplegia, a most common consequence of cerebro-vascular accident, results with unilateral disability; thereby the pattern of the paralyzed leg is modified, and in many cases prevents or greatly(More)
