Kinesthetic Feedback during 2DOF Wrist Movements via a Novel MR-Compatible Robot
We demonstrate the interaction control capabilities of the MR-SoftWrist, a novel MR-compatible robot capable of applying accurate kinesthetic feedback to wrist pointing movements executed during fMRI. The MR-SoftWrist, ...
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 ...
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 ...
Characterization of a hand-wrist exoskeleton, READAPT, via kinematic analysis of redundant pointing tasks
Training coordinated hand and wrist movement is invaluable during post-neurological injury due to the anatomical, biomechanical, and functional couplings of these joints. This paper presents a novel rehabilitation device ...
Quantitative Testing of fMRI-Compatibility of an Electrically Active Mechatronic Device for Robot-Assisted Sensorimotor Protocols
OBJECTIVE: To develop a quantitative set of methods for testing the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) compatibility of an electrically-active mechatronic device developed to support sensorimotor protocols during ...
