Abstract:

The aim of this article is to introduce the robotic orthosis Lokomat (that was developed to automate the treadmill training rehabilitation of locomotion for spinal cord injured and stroke patients) to the Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) and Neuromodulation research communities, and to report on our newly conducted research. The article first illustrates the primary use of Lokomat in rehabilitation and focuses on control aspects and algorithms associated with robotic rehabilitation of locomotion. Finally we describe two applications where the Lokomat was used as a research tool. The first application is the closed-loop control of the FES induced shank movement, and the second the development of a neural network model of the spinal locomotor centers. This model was used to derive a neural locomotion controller for the Lokomat.
