Robotic Training Method May Improve Gait, Posture in Kids with Cerebral Palsy

Robotic Training Method May Improve Gait, Posture in Kids with Cerebral Palsy

A robotic training mechanism targeting posture in children with cerebral palsy has been developed by a research team from the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University. A pilot study, published in the journal Science Robotics,demonstrated results of using a Tethered Pelvic Assist Device (TPAD), which was designed to improve muscle strength and coordination, during therapy for children with cerebral palsy. TPAD is a light, wearable, cable-driven robot that applies external forces on the human body during walking. Six children used the device while walking on a treadmill.  The results showed improved posture, stronger legs, and faster walking speed.
