抄録

A cycling wheelchair (CWC) is a rehabilitation tool for hemiplegic patients. In previous studies, our group developed a virtual reality system that allows patients to practice driving a CWC. This study proposes a new method to estimate the torque of each leg extension of a hemiplegic patient while driving the virtual CWC. Experimental results from four healthy subjects and four hemiplegic patients showed the usefulness of the proposed method in evaluating the motor function of the patients.
