Abstract

In this study, a portable prototype system of FES foot drop correction and gait measurements was tested with a hemiplegic subject to develop FES rehabilitation system for gait of hemiplegic subjects. The prototype system consisted of a tablet-type device and 2 inertial sensors and an electrical stimulator. The system worked properly during walking with FES foot drop correction and foot inclination angles, stride time and gait event timings were obtained. Measurement of gait information during rehabilitation training can be useful to evaluate the training effect.
