Hybrid Orthosis: The Technology for Spinal Cord Injury

R. Jailani, M.O. Tokhi and S. Gharooni

Hybrid orthosis combined Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) with a lower limb orthotic brace. The first hybrid orthosis system is introduce in 1972 and since many researchers began to produced hybrid orthosis from complex research devices to nearly commercialized products. The purpose of this study is to provide a review of hybrid orthosis available for rehabilitation of paraplegics. This review should provide a guide to biomedical engineers to understand the tools developed the design characteristics, the advantages and disadvantages of hybrid orthosis that strive to improve paraplegic mobility especially in walking.
