Interface for Paraplegic Walking

About

This research aims to develop a walking control interface for paraplegic patients wearing exoskeletons. The interface enables the patients to intentionally control their stride instead of following pre-designed motions of the lower limb exoskeleton during walking. In addition, a humanoid robot was developed to implement walking experiment for evaluating the contribution of the interface.
