The Lokomat, a system developed by Hocoma AG, is a device for patients on post stroke by making their leg muscles stronger, and by let them gain more muscle mass than a control group. The Lokomat System uses high quality computer controlled motors which are integrated in the gait orthosis at each hip and knee joint. The system consists of the Lokomat (robotic gait orthosis) and the Lokobasis (body weight support system). It is used in combination with a Woodway treadmill.
