Rehabilitation Robotics

This dataset contains the output from 3D gait analysis. Over a period of 3 months, between January 1st and March 31st in 2019, 5 children were familiarized with the Hibbot by using the walking aid for 30 minutes, twice a week, under the supervision of a physiotherapist.


Previous studies of robotic leg prostheses and exoskeletons with regenerative actuators have focused almost exclusively on level-ground walking applications. Here we analyzed the lower-limb joint mechanical work and power during stand-to-sit movements using inverse dynamics to estimate the biomechanical energy theoretically available for electrical energy regeneration and storage. Nine subjects performed 20 sitting and standing movements while lower-limb kinematics and ground reaction forces were experimentally measured.
