Continuous Gait Phase Estimation using LSTM for Robotic Transfemoral Prosthesis Across Walking Speeds

Author(s): Pilwon Hur, Woolim Hong, Jinwon Lee
Continuous Gait Phase Estimation using LSTM for Robotic Transfemoral Prosthesis Across Walking Speeds 507 183 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

User gait phase estimation plays a key role for the seamless control of the lower-limb robotic assistive devices (e.g., exoskeletons or prostheses) during ambulation. To achieve this, several studies have…
