The recovery of a balance and gait is a primary objective for geriatric, neurological or orthopedic rehabilitation. Since the 80s, many walking robots were proposed. Despite encouraging results, the use of robotic equipment for gait training remains limited, even if they meet a strong social demand. The reasons for this situation are economic, but also related to the non consideration of the context of utilization . This project aimed at developping a mobile and interactive robot, dedicated to the rehabilitation of balance and gait at an early stage. It was intended for patients with impaired walking vascular neurological, traumatic or associated with chronic neurological disease. The aim of the study is to study the effectiveness of the prototype (interactive walking mobile robot).
