A novel FES control paradigm based on muscle synergies for postural rehabilitation therapy with hybrid exoskeletons

Abstract

Hybrid exoskeletons combine robotic orthoses and motor neuroprosthetic devices to compensate for motor disabilities and assist rehabilitation. The basic idea is to take benefits from the strength of each technology, primarily the power of robotic actuators and the clinical advantages of using patient's muscles, while compensating for the respective… (More)
