Title (EN) APPARATUS COMPRISING A SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR A USER AND ITS OPERATION IN A GRAVITY-ASSIST MODE
(FR) APPAREIL COMPRENANT UN SYSTÈME DE SUPPORT POUR UN UTILISATEUR ET SON FONCTIONNEMENT EN MODE ASSISTANCE À GRAVITÉ
Abstract:
(EN) The present application relates to devices and systems for rehabilitation of the locomotor system, for example limbs. In particular, the present application discloses an apparatus, more in particular a robotic platform capable of optimizing gravity-dependent trunk movements, enabling overground locomotion in non-ambulatory individuals with spinal cord injury and stroke, while promoting durable motor improvement when delivered during gait rehabilitation facilitated by electrical spinal cord stimulation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des dispositifs et des systèmes de rééducation du système locomoteur, par exemple, des membres. En particulier, la présente invention concerne un appareil, plus particulièrement une plate-forme robotique permettant d'optimiser des mouvements de tronc dépendants de la gravité, ce qui permet une locomotion au sol chez des individus non ambulatoires ayant subi une blessure médullaire ou un accident vasculaire cérébral, tout en favorisant une amélioration motrice durable lors d'une utilisation au cours de la rééducation de la marche facilitée par une stimulation électrique de la moelle épinière.
