About this book

This book presents the development of a new multimodal human-robot interface for testing and validating control strategies applied to robotic walkers for assisting human mobility and gait rehabilitation. The aim is to achieve a closer interaction between the robotic device and the individual, empowering the rehabilitation potential of such devices in clinical applications.  A new multimodal human-robot interface for testing and validating control strategies applied to robotic walkers for assisting human mobility and gait rehabilitation is presented. Trends and opportunities for future advances in the field of assistive locomotion via the development of hybrid solutions based on the combination of smart walkers and biomechatronic exoskeletons are also discussed.

 

Reviews

“The purpose is to provide a theoretical and practical understanding of the interface between humans and robotic devices in general and the innovative intelligent walker in particular, which can enable safe and effective walking by people with various forms of neurological disabilities. … Figures are plentiful and well done. This is a unique and specialized book focusing heavily on the creation and testing of the innovative robotic walker. The device itself is elegantly designed and thought-provoking, making for good reading.” (Elliot J. Roth, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2017)
