Robogait® is a robot assisted walking rehabilitation system used to regain and develop walking ability in situations of loss of walking ability caused by traumatic brain and spine injuries, strokes, neurological or orthopaedic causes. Fundamental approach in the treatment is the movement of unfunctional lower extremities in normal walking pattern and performance of load transfer in a controlled way. A combined treatment is aimed with activation of neuronal road and walking performed with the control of robotic system.
Walking rehabilitation has a significant position in neurological rehabilitation. Locomotor treatment as a way of assisted walking system providing partial body weight transfer on treadmill has been brought forward as a hopeful treatment concept with the studies conducted in recent years. An efficient treatment in favour of motor learning is implemented in this technique by putting the patient’s complicated walking cycles to a standard repeating pattern. A high success rate has been achieved especially in patients suffering from strokes, spine injuries, Parkinson’s disease and cerebral palsy.
