Level of neurological impairment was classified into three groups: a cervical group (C) with neurological levels between C6 and C8; an upper-middle thoracic group (UT) with T4–T10 levels, and a thoracolumbar group(TL)(T12-L1 levels). The degree of gait independence was rated by the following five-point scale: outdoor independent gait (5 points), indoor independent gait (4 points), indoor supervised gait (3 points), indoor assisted gait (2 points), and gait within parallel bars (1 points). 1 shows the relationship between the neurological level and the degree of gait independence.

So, kdSFE = +1 for the shoulder. While for the elbow flexion/extension (EFE) joint, the joint angle decreases from about 110 deg to 0 deg when the elbow is extended, thus kdEFE = −1. IL Cj (•) is a function that combines the inner-loop control law and actuator dynamics for the joint j. (3) Active-Assist Mode – The active-assist therapy mode is implemented in the form of a triggered assistance mode. When a reaching task is presented to the subject, the subject starts the task by making a voluntary effort to reach the target.

In the active-assist mode, the subject starts the movement voluntarily, and the robotic assistance is initiated later when the ‘motion detection’ block detects either a slow movement or a movement away from the target. 4 Plot of the joint angle profiles of the shoulder flexion/extension, elbow flexion/extension and humeral rotation DOFs for the three therapy modes developed for RUPERT. For color reference, see page 210. these modes; the point-of-assistance is delayed in the active-assist therapy mode compared to other two modes, where the robotic assistance is present from the start of the therapy task.
