Robotic Gait Assistive Strategy For People With Paraplegia: Generating Balanced And Human-Like Gait On A Bipedal System

Grant number: DP1093476 | Funding period: 2010 - 2013

Completed

Abstract

The outcomes of the project will contribute significantly to the fundamental understanding of bipedal mechanisms, robotics, and the dynamics of human gait. This research is unique in Australia and it will strengthen Australia's research standing in robotics and health-sciences. The immediate application of the outcomes will contribute significantly to the musculoskeletal and psychological health of people with spinal cord injury, as well as the basic locomotion capability around the house to carry out their daily tasks more independently and conveniently. Hence it will directly contribute to improving their quality of life and substantially reducing health-care costs and carer responsibiliti..
