The ETH Knee Perturbator was developed at the RELab for estimation of knee joint impedance during human gait. It offers the possibility to induce controlled angle perturbations during treadmill walking. EMG measurements of perturbed walking could provide insight into how humans deal with disturbances during ambulation, and inform controller design for prostheses or exoskeletons.
