  • Publication number: 20240188848
    Abstract: The learning system includes a data generation unit configured to generate learning data based on rehabilitation data and a learning unit configured to perform machine learning using the learning data. A sensor is provided to detect a plurality of motion amounts in a walking motion of a trainee, and it is evaluated that, when one of the motion amounts matches one of abnormal walking criteria, that the walking motion is an abnormal walking pattern that meets the matched abnormal walking criterion. The data generation unit generates each of the pieces of rehabilitation data before and after a change in the results of evaluation of the abnormal walking pattern as learning data. The learning unit sequentially inputs each of the pieces of rehabilitation data as one data set, thereby performing machine learning.
