This paper describes the design and human machine interface of an Active Leg EXoskeleton (ALEX) for gait rehabilitation of patients with walking disabilities. The paper proposes force-field controller which can apply suitable forces on the leg to help it move on a desired trajectory. The interaction forces between the subject and the orthosis are designed to be 'assist-as-needed' for safe and effective gait training. Simulations and experimental results with the force-field controller are… CONTINUE READING
