  • Patent number: 10242590
    Abstract: A wearable training device for gait rehabilitation and a method using the same are provided. The training device includes a power supply unit, a light emitting unit, a support member and a trigger unit. The power supply unit and the light emitting unit are coupled with each other and disposed on the support member attached on a user's lower limb. The trigger unit is contacted a sole of foot of the lower limb on which the support member is attached, and coupled to the light emitting unit. When the sole of foot is landed, the trigger unit is triggered to activate the light emitting unit to project a visible light on the ground where a front stepping point of user's opposite lower limb is located, to form a stepping prompt point with visible prompt effect on the ground. Therefore, the user can be guided to step.

  • Publication number: 20180199881
    Abstract: A portable quantification apparatus for assessing joint accessory movement is disclosed in the present invention. The apparatus includes a reference unit, a movement unit, a sliding unit and a displacement sensor. The reference unit has a first probe and a first force sensor. The movement unit has a second probe and a second force sensor. The sliding unit is disposed between the reference unit and the movement unit which allows the movement unit to slide alongside with the reference unit. When a patient is under a test, the first probe is against one of two adjacent bones of a joint, while the second probe is against the other adjacent bone. The first force sensor and the second force sensor sense a first force and a second force applying to the reference unit and the movement unit respectively. The displacement sensor measures a relative movement of the movement unit over the reference unit.
