To explore the intervention effect of exoskeleton robot training on anxiety of stroke patients. Methods 24 stroke patients with hemiplegia were randomly divided into experimental group and control group, with 12 cases in each group. Moreover, the robot group took the walking training with UGO 210, a lower limb exoskeleton walking rehabilitation, once per day, 30 minutes per time, a total of 20 times of treatment. Before the trial and at the end of the trial cycle, patients’ emotions were assessed using the Self-rating Anxiety scale (SAS), and the efficacy of the two groups was compared. Results: The scores of anxiety scale decreased in both groups (P <0.05), and there was no difference between the two groups (P <0.05). Conclusion: The use of exoskeleton robot can improve the anxiety of stroke patients, but there is no difference compared with the conventional walking training.
