99.“Right & Left Scissors Angles” measured by Honda Motor’s “Walk Assist”
robotic rehab instrument act as accurate indicators of humans’  walking ability
and the “Walk Assist” help doctors record and analyze characteristics of Gait
Cycles at both post-stroke hemiplegic patients and healthy persons

The authors decided to divide into six parts this medical dissertation on the
strong rehabilitation effects exerted for post-stroke hemiplegic patients’
walking ability by the Honda Motor automaker’s robotic rehabilitation
instrument in view of the combined large size of texts, data, tables, figures
and photographs presented in the dissertation. Readers are advised to keep
in mind that the subsequent six parts make up the one whole dissertation.

151. Honda Motor’s robotic gait rehab instrument quantifies left & right legs’
movements in terms of measures of angle between femur and perpendicular
drawn down from hip joint, enabling doctors to easily grasp poststroke
hemiplegic patients’ degrees of the seriousness of asymmetry between
both legs’ ability to flex and extend and to orchestrate physical therapists’
efforts to return patients’ asymmetric walking patterns closer to sound
symmetrical patterns in light of a left-right legs’ spread-ability asymmetry
degree index
