  1. Synchronization gain conditions A, B, and C are shown in Table 2. In the tables, Bold numbers indicate a significant difference (* p<0.05, determined by repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by Tukey’s test) between the patients’ gait without wearing the power unit (PU) including actuators, a switch box, and a controller box of the curara system
