ALTACRO Project

ALTACRO is a 5-year project (2008-2012) funded by the university research council of Vrije Universiteit Brussel. ALTACRO stands for Automated Locomotion Training using an Actuated Compliant Robotic Orthosis.

This multidisciplinary research project aims at the development and clinical testing of a step rehabilitation robot powered by compliant actuators. The ALTACRO project is a contribution to the synergy between robotics and rehabilitation. Our primary goals are to improve the quality of step rehabilitation therapy both for patients and therapists and increasing the availability of automated step rehabilitation training.
