Assessment of walking performance in robot-assisted gait training: A novel approach based on empirical data


Banz, R; Riener, R; Lünenburger, L; Bolliger, M (2008). Assessment of walking performance in robot-assisted gait training: A novel approach based on empirical data. Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 30:1977-1980.

Abstract

Motivation and voluntary drive of patients can be improved by applying biofeedback during robot-assisted rehabilitation trainings. Biofeedback systems were traditionally based on theoretical assumptions. In this paper, we present a novel approach to calculate biofeedback during robot-assisted gait training. Our method was based on empirical data that were obtained from healthy subjects when simulating distinctive degrees of walking performance during robot-assisted gait training. This empirical data-based biofeedback (EDBF) method was evaluated with 18 subjects without gait disorders. A higher correlation between the subjects’ walking performance and biofeedback values was found for the EDBF method compared to a theory-based biofeedback approach

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
