Rehabilitation exoskeleton – the perspective of improving the quality of life for people with disabilities

The objective of the rehabilitation is to restore the patient’s lost physical fitness, undertake activities preventing this loss and accelerate the creation of substitute compensatory mechanisms in the event of permanent morphological damage. The effectiveness of rehabilitation of disabled people can be increased through the use of manipulators and rehabilitation robots. Manipulators and rehabilitation robots are used for wheelchairs, for direct patient support and for therapeutic exercises. The exoskeleton offers vast possibilities of use in rehabilitation and patient care, both by medical personnel (in support mode) and by patients themselves (in rehabilitation mode).
