Abstract

We describe the design of a special lower limb rehabilitation robot for leg patients and its operation. The lower limb rehabilitation robot is composed of linear motion mechanisms, links, a foot plate, a joint and two-axis force sensors. The links and the foot plate are rotated according to the linear motion mechanisms. The bending motions of the hip, knee, and ankle are performed. The designed rehabilitation robot was subjected to tests involving hip joint bending, knee joint bending, and ankle joint bending exercises, and the robot operated smoothly. Therefore, it can be concluded that the designed rehabilitation robot can be used on leg patients, for the three exercises stated above.
