Robotic Exoskeleton for Treatment of Crouch Gait in Children with Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center (NIHCC) and Northern Arizona University (NAU) seek licensing and/or co-development research collaborations for a wearable, pediatric, robotic exoskeleton that facilitates knee extension during walking to provide motorized movement assistance and training through the gait cycle. The Robotic Exoskeleton is specifically designed for therapy of crouch gait in children with cerebral palsy (CP). The design is a customizable human-machine interface that allows an individualized assistance protocol to help preserve and enhance muscle strength and control. Early clinical results from this intervention appear promising for a condition having few effective long-term interventions.
