The Haptic Bracelets: Gait rehabilitation after Stroke

Georgiou, Theodoros; Holland, Simon and van der Linden, Janet (2016). The Haptic Bracelets: Gait rehabilitation after Stroke. In: EuroHaptics 2016, Jul 4-7, London, UK.



Restoring mobility and rehabilitation of gait are high priorities for rehabilitation of neurological conditions. Cueing using metronomic rhythmic sensory stimulation has been shown to improve gait, but most versions of this approach have used auditory and visual cues. In contrast, we propose the development of a prototype wearable system for rhythmic cueing based on haptics. The main aim of this research is to investigate how real-time gait monitoring and rhythmic haptic cueing can assist with gait rehabilitation for neurological conditions.
