Application of intermittent control of the knee joint stiffness in a knee ankle foot orthosis (KAFO) during gait is proposed. The approach combines inertial sensors and an actuator system in order to apply compensation in quadriceps weakness with a wearable device. Two methods, segment-angular rotation based and segment-angular velocity based, are analysed(More)
In this paper, we present a brain-computer interface (BCI) driven motorized ankle-foot orthosis (BCI-MAFO), intended for stroke rehabilitation, and we demonstrate its efficacy in inducing cortical neuroplasticity in healthy subjects with a short intervention procedure (∼15 min). This system detects imaginary dorsiflexion movements within a short latency(More)
A neurobot (NR) is a mechatronic wearable robot that can be applied to drive a paralyzed limb. Through the application of controllable forces, a NR can assist, replace, or retrain a certain motor function. Robotic intervention in rehabilitation of motor disorders has a potential to improve traditional therapeutic interventions. Because of its flexibility,(More)
Lower limb wearable robots are entering an exciting era. An increasing number of solutions are moving out of the lab, approaching the everyday rehabilitation practice and home-based assistive scenarios. In this context, the quantitative assessment of the technology is crucial for its correct inclusion in the market. Nevertheless, the tool normally used to(More)
