Abstract

Sit-to-stand (STS) is an important component of independent mobility and is impaired in individuals post-stroke. We studied the effects of a wearable, robotic exoskeleton on hemiparetic limb asymmetry during STS. The device appears to facilitate weight bearing through the affected leg by providing assistance during the countermovement and rebound phases of STS.
