This paper describes a robotic training system designed to rehabilitate the standing ability of mice after spinal cord injury(SCI). The system is composed of a 6 Degree-of-Freedom (DOF) parallel mechanism, an active weight support system, and other measuring equipments which can monitor the response of the mouse. Preliminary experiments showed that the mouse could generate a certain degree of weight-support stand response during the training.
