This paper proposes a parallel rehabilitation robotic system, for lower limb medical rehabilitation, targeting especially post-stroke patients with motor function impairments. The paper presents the experimental model development, highlighting the main components of a solid and reliable mechanical structure, complying with the medical requirements. The control system has been developed using microcontrollers and a user interface which shows a real-time robot configuration simulation of the robot during training exercises is also presented.
