Abstract

A number of cable-based systems have been developed for gait rehabilitation, but one aspect which remains relatively under-addressed is medial-lateral postural stability, which can be exacerbated when using certain types of gait rehabilitation equipment. In this paper, a cable system is presented for promoting healthy medial-lateral postural stability patterns and integrating with existing gait rehabilitation devices, as well as providing direct assistance at the joints of the lower limb.
