MIT-Skywalker: A novel environment for neural gait rehabilitation

Abstract

A novel concept of rehabilitation is proposed for the recovery of walking post-stroke made possible by a novel piece of robotic hardware, the MIT Skywalker-γ prototype. Rather than prescribing motion for the patient similar to most current rehabilitation robots, we built an environment to foster self-directed movement. The concept is based upon our… (More)
