The invention refers to a parallel modular robotic system (RAISE) designed for post-stroke rehabilitation of bedridden patients. The robotic system targets all the major joints of the lower limb: the hip, the knee, and the ankle. The solution covers a white spot in the post-stroke rehabilitation as most existing devices perform gait manipulation which require a standing position for the patient. The solution provides early access for acute post-stroke patients with balance problems and/or high levels of paresis, improving the therapeutic outcome of rehabilitation.
