Abstract:

Article Preview

We propose a lower limb rehabilitation device to assist people with impairment in regaining the ability of legs. The device consists of links and the installation of springs, the features are as follows: (1) it is semi-passive and home-based, allowing stroke patients to conduct lower limb movement under their own control; (2) the structure is simple and the weight is light, but it has the similar benefit as other therapeutic robots; (3) Biodex and Electromyography (EMG) are utilized to analyze the device. The result shows rectus femoris, vastus lateralis and vastus medialis muscles are well trained.
