For patients with dyskinesias caused by central nervous system diseases such as stroke, in the early stage of rehabilitation training, lower limb rehabilitation robots are used to provide passive rehabilitation training. This paper proposed a human-like robust adaptive PD control strategy of the exoskeleton robot based on healthy human gait data. When the error disturbance is bounded, a human-like robust adaptive PD control strategy is designed, which not only enables the rehabilitation exoskeleton robot to quickly track the human gait trajectory obtained through the 3D NOKOV motion capture system, but also can well identify the structural parameters of the system and avoid excessively initial output torque for the robot. MATLAB simulation verifies that the proposed method has a better performance to realize tracking the experimental trajectory of human movement and anti-interference ability under the condition of ensuring global stability for a lower limb rehabilitation exoskeleton robot.
