Welwalk Robotic Leg Brace

Welwalk Robotic Leg Brace
The Welwalk robotic leg brace from Toyota could help paralyzed patients gain a degree of mobility.

Designed for use during therapy sessions, the Welwalk is made up of a leg brace that connects to the leg at four points, while the wearer is supported by an overhead harness. As the motors in the Welwalk assist in bending and straightening the leg, sensors will monitor the wearer’s walking speed and gait as the staff controls the system via a touchscreen.

How is it with long-term bedfast patients? There may still be lots of space for new ways to train their muscles. The weakest exercise passively letting the equipment do all workout and stronger patients also resist. The safest way might be an exercise harness based on bodyweight training.
