Walking Faster and Farther With a Soft Robotic Exosuit: Implications for Post-Stroke Gait Assistance and Rehabilitation
Objective: Soft robotic exosuits can improve the mechanics and energetics of walking after stroke. Building on this prior work, we evaluated the effects of the first prototype of a portable soft robotic exosuit. Methods: Exosuit-induced changes in the overground walking... Read more

Personalization of Energy Expenditure Estimation in Free Living Using Topic Models
We introduce an approach to personalize energy expenditure (EE) estimates in free living. First we use Topic Models (TM) to discover activity composites from recognized activity primitives and stay regions in daily living data. Subsequently, we determine activity composites that... Read more
