End-effector robots for gait training have potential for cardiovascular fitness therapy. We developed and tested a heart rate (HR) controller for end-effector robots, operated in stair-climbing mode. The structure has an inner loop for volitional control of exercise work rate and an automatic outer loop to compute target work rate and control HR. Feedback… CONTINUE READING
