Abstract

A Closed-Fitting-Type walking assistance device was developed. The combination of a flexible shaft with a worm gear was successfully adopted on this device to simplify its appearance and reduce its size. A hybrid control system on this device controls both torque and angle at the ankle and knee joints. As a result of walking that mounted a Walking Assistance Device to motor paralysis patient, the effect of support and the improvement of postural were achieved.
