The very rigid pelvic band in the HGO greatly restricts trunk movement. , lateral-sided hip joints and hard pelvic support, makes it difficult to use a wheelchair while wearing them. To address these issues, a new unique system, which we call the “medial system”, has become available in medical practice. The medial system, introduced as the Walkabout in 1992, had excellent standing stability and wheelchair compatibility. However, there was a height gap in the position between the orthotic hip joint and the anatomical hip joint, as well as the problem of a short stride in walking.

The use of these three therapy modes for performing reaching movements by a stroke subject is demonstrated in Fig. 4. This figure displays the temporal plots of the three DOFs of the robot involved in reaching movements, shoulder flexion/extension, elbow flexion/extension and humeral rotation. The figure consists of a 9 plots arranged in three rows and columns, which correspond to the three therapy modes, and the three DOFs respectively. In the passive mode (row 1) the subject was relaxed and the position controller of the robot drives the three DOFs to their corresponding target angles.
