Current trends in robot-assisted upper-limb stroke rehabilitation: promoting patient engagement in therapy
Stroke is one of the leading causes of long-term disability today; therefore, many research efforts are focused on designing maximally effective and efficient treatment methods. In particular, robotic stroke rehabilitation ...
Design of a parallel-group balanced controlled trial to test the effects of assist-as-needed robotic therapy
In this methods paper, we report on the design of a clinical study testing the efficacy of a newly developed control scheme for robot-aided rehabilitation. To measure the value added by a new control scheme, we pursued a ...
Maintaining subject engagement during robotic rehabilitation with a minimal assist-as-needed (mAAN) controller
One challenge of robotic rehabilitation interventions is devising ways to encourage and maintain high levels of subject involvement over long duration therapy sessions. Assist-as-needed controllers have been proposed which ...
Effects of Assist-As-Needed Upper Extremity Robotic Therapy after Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury: A Parallel-Group Controlled Trial
Background: Robotic rehabilitation of the upper limb following neurological injury has been supported through several large clinical studies for individuals with chronic stroke. The application of robotic rehabilitation ...
Robot-Assisted Training of Arm and Hand Movement Shows Functional Improvements for Incomplete Cervical Spinal Cord Injury
Objective The aim of the study was to demonstrate the feasibility, tolerability, and effectiveness of robotic-assisted arm training in incomplete chronic tetraplegia. Design Pretest/posttest/follow-up was conducted. Ten ...
