Mobility is a key function in our life and its loss has a major impact. In this seminar we want to explore existing solutions to gait assistance - including robotic gait rehabilitation and exoskeletons for gait assistance and augmentation. The course aims at identifying current challenges in technical gait assistive devices and directions for future development.
