After a stroke, patients often need gait rehabilitation training to regain a safe walking pattern to participate in daily activities again. Good gait rehabilitation training comprises high intensity, which can be achieved using support systems, such as treadmills. Research pointed out that there are insufficient support systems for patients with...

In the field of neurorehabilitation, robots are being used to provide assisting forces for therapeutic purposes, and with system identification & parameter estimation (SIPE) methods they are used to quantify neuromechanical parameters for diagnostic purposes. To better understand the beneficial effect of robotic assistance on the neuromechanical...

Bilateral coupling, the synchronized behavior between the upper limbs in time and direction, is a well known movement phenomenon for babies. After the age of 11 months, this coupling is largely inhibited so that each limb can be coordinated individually. For stroke patients however, bilateral coupling tends to return. The goal of this study is...

Offset muscle activation is the constant neural firing to muscles, even at rest, defining the minimum muscle contraction. Until now, the offset muscle activation has been neglected in the analysis of the dynamical behavior of joints. There is a clinical need for an assessment method to estimate the contribution of the offset muscle activation to...
