To capture the intended action of the patient and provide assistance as needed, the robotic rehabilitation device controller needs the intended posture, intended joint angle, intended torque and intended desired impedance of the patient. These parameters can be extracted from sEMG signal that are associated with knee joint. Thus an exoskeleton device requires a multilayer control mechanism to achieve a smooth Human Machine Interaction force. This paper proposes a method to estimate the required knee joint angles and associate parameters. The paper has investigated the feasibility of Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) as a estimator of the operation range of extension and The performance is compared with Generalized Regression Neural Network (GRNN) and Neural Network (NN). ELM has performed relatively better than GRNN and NN.
