However, if the subject’s movement lags behind the desired movement, the subject will feel an assistive force from the robot. This type of a therapy mode was implemented in the MIT MANUS robot where the subject feels no force if he/she is able to move ahead of the desired trajectory, but feel an impedance from the robot when his/her movement lags behind the desired movement (Krebs et al. (2003)). 2) τj (t) = ⎩ CjIL kdj × θ error , kdj × θ error (t) ≥ 0 j j where, τj (t) is the torque applied to the joint j.
