dc.description.abstractThe Re-Link Trainer (RLT) is a 4-bar linkage end-effector that attaches to the paretic limb via a footplate, constraining the limb to a normal gait trajectory. This study aimed to determine the feasibility of using the RLT in a hospital setting, by measuring ease of getting into the RLT and set up time with acute or sub-acute stroke patients. This paper presents preliminary results from two stroke patients who have participated in the study so far. Both patients were set up in the RLT with assistance from two therapists, and both were able to stand and walk in the device with varying levels of assistance.en_US
