Comparing robotic control strategies for robot-aided gait therapy

Objective

Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago is conducting a study examining robot-aided walking performance using newer, advanced robotic technology. This knowledge is expected to assist the development of rehabilitation programs that could improve walking outcomes in individuals who have had a stroke and help them become independent ambulators.
