Rehabilitation evaluation is an important part of rehabilitation training. It is closely related to the robot-assisted training effect. Different rehabilitation robots need different methods to evaluate patients. Rehabilitation training is a long process, and the patient’s performance scores will continue to change. A lower-limb rehabilitation robot needs a dynamic performance score to evaluate rehabilitation’s effects. This study used an analytic hierarchy process and fuzzy comprehensive evaluation methods to establish a rehabilitation evaluation system for lower-limb rehabilitation robots. A multi-scale personalized rehabilitation plan is conceived, based on the evaluation system and the combination of objective factors. This method dynamically adjusts the plan according to the rehabilitation situation of patients, which is beneficial to the improvement of the efficiency and initiative of training.
