Abstract

LOPES aims for an active role of the patient by selective and partial support of gait functions during robotic treadmill training sessions. Virtual model control (VMC) was applied to the robot as an intuitive method for translating current treadmill gait rehabilitation therapy programs into robotic rehabilitation therapy. Virtual models are proposed for the selective control of gait functions during treadmill training. From this collection of models several, representing the extremes of the entire set of virtual models, were implemented. The results show that VMC is a promising method for the control of a gait rehabilitation robot.
