Background : Neurodegenerative diseases and disorders present with a wide range of clinical and neuropathological symptoms caused by progressive neuronal dysfunction and eventual neuronal death. As individuals with neurodegenerative diseases experience gradual sensory, motor, and cognitive debilitation, the maintenance and recovery of a functional gait holds physiological, psychological, and financial importance. Developments in robotically-aided therapies are becoming more commonly used as a… CONTINUE READING
