Kinematic walking analysis on a new vehicle "Tread-Walk" with active velocity control of treadmill belt.

Abstract

The importance on walking for health is growing in elder dominated society. We have been developing a new mobility "Tread-Walk 1 (TW-1)" controlled by walking movement. The device uses active treadmill velocity control, which allows the user to walk on the treadmill at any desired velocity. In this paper, the walking movements on the TW-1 were kinematically… (More)
