Abstract

BACKGROUND:

How to improve the daily activity of patients with central nervous system injury caused by cerebrovascular diseases is the problem to be solved in rehabilitation medicine. The development of lower extremity rehabilitation exoskeletons may solve it.

OBJECTIVE:

To review the research and development of lower extremity rehabilitation exoskeletons in order to design and develop them.

METHODS:

An online search of literatures published between January 1990 to December 2008 of lower extremity rehabilitation exoskeletons was performed in PubMed database (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed) and Wanfang database (http://www.wanfangdata.com.cn) with the key words of “exoskeletons robots, central nerve damage, passive rehabilitation training, the man-machine integration interaction interface” in English and in Chinese. The repetitive studies were excluded.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

Totally 26 articles were chosen to summarize. There are amount of studies on rehabilitation exoskeletons. However, if small volume, light, low power consumption, high power output can be solved in the rehabilitation exoskeletons, while they also have the abilities of fast response, low inertia, high precision and high security, the maximum response function of lower limb of nerve damage patients may be achieved.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:
