Visible to the public Human-Machine Interaction with Mobility Enhancing Soft Exosuits


Stroke is the major cause of disability in adults in the western world, often resulting in hemiparesis and severe mobility impairments. Recently, rigid exoskeletons have been introduced for clinic-based gait rehabilitation: these systems can apply high levels of assistance, but also introduce kinematic restrictions and significant additional mass to the patient. As such, these devices are well suited to patients with little to no residual mobility (e.g.
