Abstract
Body weight support (BWS) system is widely used for patients to help their gait training. However, that existing systems require large workspace and elastic component in actuation makes the systems inappropriate for wide clinical use. The interactive treadmill was reported to be cost/space effectively simulate overground walking, but there was no suitable BWS system for the treadmill. We proposed a new concept of body weight support system for interactive treadmill. For wide clinical use, we applied a two-wire driven mechanism with simple actuator and a custom pelvic-type harness. With three healthy subjects, the performance of the proposed BWS system on unloading force control was evaluated, and the result showed that the feasibility of the proposed BWS system. © 2019 IEEE.
