Abstract

This abstract provides preliminary results about changes in quality of life following gait training with a lower limb wearable robotic exoskeleton. Quality of life is now commonly included as a secondary outcome in wearable robotic research, necessitating the use of quality of life measures that possess good psychometric characteristics. Thus, information is provided about available quality of life measures along with recommendations for selecting a measure for wearable robotic therapy research.
