An individual with paraplegia due to spinal cord injury (SCI) uses electroencephalogram (EEG)-based brain-computer interface (BCI) to operate a robotic gait orthosis (Lokomat, Hocoma, Volketswil, Switzerland). The subject is instructed by alternating 1-minute cues presented on the screen to idle (red) and walk (green) for a total of 5 minutes. The subject is 80% body-weight supported. There is a 5-7 second delay due to Lokomat's start-up and shut-down cycle. The video also shows the mounting and unmounting procedures. Note the 4x speed.

This work--a collaboration between UC Irvine and Long Beach VA--is partially supported by the National Science Foundation, UC Irvine Institute for Clinical and Translational Sciences, VA SCIRE, and the Spinal Cord Injury Fund.
