In this paper, we propose a new walking support system based on cooperation between wearable-type and cane-type walking support systems for supporting hemiplegia patients. In this system, we want to realize several functions such as swing phase support, navigation, fall prevention and sit-to-stand assist by controlling each walking support system cooperatively. As the first challenge of our research, in this paper, the wearable-type walking support system assists a leg motion during swing phase based on the motion of the cane-type walking support system moved by the user.
