  • The Honda Walking Assist Device features a measuring function which visualizes unique walking patterns and training status of each user on a tablet–type information device.
  • Three training modes are available:
    1) Following mode: The Walking Assist Device influence the user’s walking motions based on the walking pattern of the user.
    2) Symmetric mode: Based on the walking patterns of the user, the Walking Assist Device influences the user to achieve bilaterally symmetric motions such as bending and extending both legs.
    3) Step mode: The Walking Assist Device influence the user’s steps repeatedly to recover the rocker functions* which enable the smooth shifting of weight.

    * Rocker functions are leg motions which enable smooth shifting of weight from heal to sole and sole to toe.
