Exoskeleton for Gait Rehabilitation: Effects of Assistance, Mechanical Structure, and Walking Aids on Muscle Activations

Several exoskeletons have been developed and increasingly used in clinical settings for training and assisting locomotion. These devices allow people with severe motor deficits to regain mobility and sustain intense and repetitive gait training. However, three factors might affect normal muscle acti...
