Special Session – Wearable robotics

Modelling and control methods for FES systems and/or wearable exoskeletons for rehabilitation or assistance of human movement.
Organizers: Juan C Moreno/José L Pons (Cajal Institute, CSIC)
12mn presentation + 3mn questions/transition

This session will present and discuss recent approaches and strategies that are applicable for interfacing motor neuroprostheses and/or wearable robots to the human body. Recent advances will be presented on the use of neural and biomechanical signals for control of FES or hybrid modes of assistance to support and rehabilitate spinal cord injured and post-stroke patients.
