Abstract

This work presents a multimodal cognitive interaction strategy aiming at walker-assisted rehabilitation therapies, with special focus on post-stroke patients. Such interaction strategy is based on monitoring user's gait and face orientation to command the displacement of the smart walker. Users are able to actively command the steering of the walker by changing their face orientation, while their lower limbs movement affect the walker's linear velocity. The proposed system is validated using a smart walker and the results obtained point to the feasibility of employing such cognitive interaction in rehabilitation therapies.
