A biomechanical approach is adopted to synthesise a mechatronic system for human foot receptor activation. Experimentally found data for the dynamic characteristics of a normal walk are used. The application of the system for the rehabilitation of patients-paraplegics is verified by studying the effect of foot receptor signals on locomotion. Different loading regimes are provided. Parameters subjected to regulation are the simulated walk speed and the maximal value of the foot loading. The objective of the work presented in this paper is a derivation of a parametrical model for a definition of the proper laws and control of the drives of the system mechanical module for walk in norm of patients with spinal-brain damages.
