A mechanical Lower Limb Paralysis Simulator (LLPS) was developed for able-bodied persons to model the gait of Reciprocating Gait Orthosis (RGO) users. The purpose of this study was to determine if able-bodied subjects ambulating with the LLPS exhibited gait characteristics typical of RGO users. Five able-bodied persons were trained to ambulate with the LLPS and underwent a motion gait analysis. LLPS users were found to exhibit gait patterns that were characteristic of RGO-assisted gait.
