The video shows a 2-dof parallel robot design for ankle rehabilitation. The device can be used for passive and active exercises. In the first case, the patient is passive and the device applies a motion to the patient's foot. In the latter case, the device is passive and the patient actively tries to move his foot perceiving a certain resistance. For passive exercises the device is position controlled while for active exercises an Admittance controller is implemented. This system is under development at the Italian Institute of Technology.
