Hank Robot: Smart Exoskeleton Robot

0

HANK has six actuated joints and is designed to allow intensive overground gait training. An assistive gait control algorithm was developed to create a force field along a desired trajectory, only applying torque when patients deviate from the prescribed movement pattern. The device was evaluated in 3 hemiparetic stroke patients across 4 weeks of training per individual (approximately 12 sessions). The study was carried out by the University of Houston. The main objective of this initial pre-clinical study was to evaluate the safety and usability of the exoskeleton. The main finding of this pre-clinical study is that the developed HANK exoskeleton provides a means for safe and intensive gait training in hemiparetic stroke survivors. Across 4 weeks of training in 3 stroke subjects, the HANK exoskeleton proved to be easy to use, with a fast donning and doffing process and was very well accepted by the patients.
