Walking after Stroke
Difficulty walking is common after stroke as a result of limited leg movement. This research program develops and tests technologies to increase independence through improved walking ability after stroke.
One approach is an implanted neuroprosthetic system, which is a permanent assistive technology designed to generate functional walking movements by activating leg muscles in a coordinated manner.
The other intervention is a hybrid exoskeleton combining surface electrical stimulation and a motorized knee for use as a therapeutic tool and to assist walking during daily life.
