Abstract

We developed a walking assistance apparatus RE-Gait® for not only the elderly but also apoplexy patients, which assist the ankle joint of the equipped person. By only assisting the ankle joint, the equipped person’s leg can be raised. To keep up the user’s motivation for exercise using this apparatus, it is necessary to assist not only physically but also mentally. Therefore we suggested the new method of promotion walking, using the walking assistance apparatus while listening to the beat sound, which was adjusted according to a two-dimensional emotion map. In this paper, the relation between emotion map and walking condition map is shown.
