Abstract:

A device for adjusting the height of and relief force acting on a weight is especially provided to be used for walking therapy of paraparetic or hemiparetic patients within a locomotion training means. Said weight of the patient is supported by a ca-ble (11, 30). A first cable length adjustment means (1) provides an adjustment of the length of the cable (11) to define the height of said suspended weight. A second cable length adjust-ment means (2) provides an adjustment of the length of the cable (11) to define the relief force acting on the suspended weight. This allows a quick and reliable determination and adjustment of the height for different patients and of the relief force within the training program of every patient.
