Abstract

The study of movements, movement coordination and muscle functioning is crucial to understand the basic requirements of various orthotic and prosthetic medical aids. Robotics and virtual reality techniques are employed to improve rehabilitation perspectives of patients having problems with walking after a stroke. Interaction between the human body and medical aids for information exchange (neural interfacing), is becoming increasingly important. Progress in this field has created the possibility to design intelligent prostheses and orthotic systems that may adapt to the user's requirements and conditions of use.
