This report presents the research development of the existing lower-limb rehabilitation system with rehabilitation therapy protocols for the SynphNe Rehabilitation Platform. Along the way, the lower-limb rehabilitation device is developed by working together with research engineer and clinical team. This report is focused on developing the electronics connections and design of the original device done by previous project team. The original design with cable wiring is developed for wireless device. The testing of the device is completed by using the software of SynphNE. To furnish with visualization, Solidworks software is used for parts drawings and assembly. Along the way of to develop the device, student has learnt the basic knowledge about lower limb’s muscles of our human body. The most challenging part of this project is preparing the prototype of the flexible cable runner for the retractable string connecting to the circuit board house which is to be placed at lower leg. Beside assembly parts drawing is one of the challenging tasks since student is not so familiar with the Solidworks software. Besides the design and drawing, student has done with the prototype. As a result, the device is developed in the way of flexible and comfortable device to help stroke patient to be able to walk and sit. It is designed to be light weight and have a retractable design while providing safe usage.
