Photographic impression of a person with an incomplete spinal cord injury walking in Wearable exoskeleton 1

Video showing the novel Neuromechanics Evaluation Device (NED). This device is developed to identify the impedance of lower leg joint by apply perturbations to these joints. The device is a cable-driven robot that can be easily reconfigured to apply perturbations to the hip or ankle. 

Demo video showing the Wearable Exoskeleton 1 (WE1) in zero impedance mode. WE1 consists of knee and ankle actuation.

Short introduction video of Amber Emmens (in Dutch), used as promotional video for 'Twenspiratie', an evening (June 12, 2015) in the theater of Hengelo with inspiring speakers from the region 'Twente'. The title of Amber's talk was 'Robots voor het leven' (robots for life).

Video showing the Mindwalker emulation in the LOPES II. This work has been reported in Deliverable 5.1


Interview with Herman van der Kooij on BNR (news radio) about the Mindwalker, the Symbitron project and the Cybathlon (in Dutch):


Video of energy consumption (O2) measurements being performed with complete SCI patients at FSL (Rome):


Video of real-time kinematics measurements being performed on a healthy subject walking in the Lokomat:
