Brief Description:

Drawing shows all components of the 3D cable driven apparatus with body weight support system.

Essential Description:

This is a simplistic 2D diagram of a 3D robotic gait training system. The diagram includes a line drawing of a person using the machine. Various parts are labeled, and arrows indicate the directional movement of some components.

Detailed Description:

The graphic is a basic line drawing. A basic line figure is walking on a modified treadmill, facing a hanging screen monitor at approximately eye level. The figure has thick straps around both ankles with separate lines from each ankle converging on one pulley in the front of the modified treadmill. Attached to the visible ankle strap and hip are two small boxes with a line connecting the two through the middle. There are arrows pointing up and down, and side to side at the box at the hip along with a label for an ankle position sensor. A pulley is attached to the hip as well, which is connected to a “Pelvis position sensor”. Behind the treadmill is a stand with a “Winch” and “Counterweight” and an attachment to a “Harness” on the line figure. The monitor is feed by a “PC” which also connects to a “Driver” that feeds a “Motor”, “Load cell” and “Cable spool” which impact the pulley attached to the lines to the ankle.
