- With the development of aging society, the number of hemiplegia patients grows rapidly and over 75% of survivors suffering hemiplegia need rehabilitation training. Traditional training methods need one or more physical therapists to server one patient at the same time. In order to reduce the workload of the physical therapist and to improve patient rehabilitation performance, this paper presents a novel multi-functional rehabilitation robot, which can assist hemiplegic patient for stand up/squatting training, Gravity shifting training and Walking training. The robot system consists of two Support manipulator, Screw lift mechanism, Weight balance device and a Treadmill. Different from the existing rehabilitation robot, the design philosophy of the multi-functional support robot is to mimic hand movement of physical therapist. It is flexible to fit in patients with individual differences. The design of the detailed mechanical components is illustrated. The proposed robot system can be used in multi-function exercise for hemiplegic patient.
