Newly Designed Rehabilitation Robot System for Walking-Aid with Pneumatic Actuator

This paper presents a mobile gait training system with body weight support (BWS), which relieves the patient of body weight by a prescribed amount, by supporting the subject with a harness. The system is based on electrical motors to achieve system mobility according to the Subjects motion of walking while it maintains a constant force on the body by means of pneumatic actuators. The mobility of the system seems to be important for a correct gait pattern as the subject is actually capable of walking. The system has a simple structure to construct, and is practical for gait rehabilitation.
