The aim of gait rehabilitation is a restoration of an independent gait and improvement of daily life walking functions. Therefore the specific patterns, that are to be relearned, must be practiced to stimulate the learning process of the central nervous system (CNS). The Walking Simulator HapticWalker allows for the training of arbitrary gait trajectories(More)
The control system for a robotic walking simulator and rehabilitation device requires enhanced operation modes and control capabilities, compared to conventional industrial robot controllers. In order to be able to implement custom made algorithms at all levels of the controller and to have an extensible and reusable control environment, we decided to(More)
A major criterion for the application of rehabilitation robots in gait therapy is the question to what extent the machine is able to facilitate physiologically correct muscle activation patters in the patients leg muscles in order to achieve an optimal gait training effect. The EMG data presented in this paper is based on intermediate results of a study(More)
