Research on assistive technologies is undergoing many developments in its effectiveness in helping those with varying impairments. New technologies are constantly being created, researched, and implemented for those who need these technological aides in daily life. Assistive Technologies for Physical and Cognitive Disabilities combines worldwide cases on people with physical and cognitive disabilities with the latest applications in assistive technologies. This reference work brings different researchers together under one title to discuss current findings, developments, and ongoing research in the area of rehabilitative technology. This reference book is of critical use to professionals, researchers, healthcare practitioners, caretakers, academicians, and students.It is comprised of phases in which the limb motions are characterized by stride, swing duration, stance duration, and double support (Sale et al., 2013). ... Also, manual stimulation of gait pattern using treadmills is limited, even though it gradually helps the patient build locomotion strength ... An early attempt to rehabilitate gait using a combination of robotics harness and treadmill was developed in 2007.
