Abstract:  Stroke is the leading course of adult disability due to the rapid population aging. Robots can be used in stroke rehabilitation to reduce the labor intensity as well as improve functional outcomes. However, the full potential of robot-assisted rehabilitation has not been realized due to the limitation of the design, sensing and control of the robotic systems. In this talk, a novel robotic exoskeleton and a robotics walker for strike patients to conduct over-ground gait training will be presented, with focus on the perspective on design, sensing, and control for the next generation gait rehabilitation robotics. 
Biography:  Dr. Yu Haoyong is an Associate Professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the National University of Singapore. He received his Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University and his PhD degree from Massachusetts institute of Technology (MIT).
