In this paper we review the ankle rehabilitation devices, both those that are already commercially available and those which are in the stage of development in laboratories and research centers. Also, a rehabilitation device is proposed here including reporting results of clinical trials prior to its availability at a commercial level. At the end of the paper there is a mention about the possibility of developing a rehabilitation ankle machine with some particular features.
