There is a need for improved methods to prescribe and evaluate the use of wearable robotic devices for the treatment of movement disorders, such as crouch gait from cerebral palsy (CP). Our first aim is to develop and validate a modeling framework for accurately predicting changes in swing limb kinematics and muscle activity during robotic assisted walking in children with CP. We will utilize an existing experimental biomechanics dataset from our exoskeleton feasibility study to refine model parameters, which may include optimization schemes, muscle properties, and limb-device interaction mechanics.

Simulation files from our publication (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jbiomech.2019.02.025) are available for download.
