Dataset: Retraining Walking Over Ground in a Powered Exoskeleton After Spinal Cord Injury ()
|Dataset Full Name
|Retraining Walking Over Ground in a Powered Exoskeleton After Spinal Cord Injury
The Retraining Walking Over Ground in a Powered Exoskeleton After Spinal Cord Injury is a mixed-methods study using both observation and interviews. It was designed to determine quantitative and qualitative outcomes in a cohort of individuals with chronic, spinal cord injury, who learned to use the ReWalk exoskeleton to walk. Researchers determined the training dosage required for walking proficiency, the sensory and motor changes in the nervous system with the training, and the perspectives of the participants with respect to both the training and the device. It was a prospective cohort study with measures taken before, during, immediately after training, and 2-3 months after training was completed.
