Abstract

This project involved designing and manufacturing a cost efficient robot that will retrain the leg muscles of paralysis patients. This project group developed a more economic design for paralysis patients to retrain their muscles and feeling of walking in their legs at a lower cost then what's on the market today. The group was able to make the device adjustable and comfortable for the patient to use easily. The group also made the device move in a precise way to simulate the human gait walking motion.
