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 research community, and to report on our newly conducted research. The article first illustrates Lokomatís use in rehabilitation, then focuses on different control aspects and algorithms, and finally describes our efforts to develop a neural network model of the spinal locomotor centers. This model was further used to derive a neural based locomotion controller for the Lokomat.
