Roboterunterstützte und computerbasierte Neurorehabilitation für Kinder: die Geschichte dahinter

Abstract

Impairments of the central motor system can either be congenital (e. g. cerebral palsy) or acquired (e. g. traumatic brain injury, stroke). These lesions are the most frequent morbidities necessitating neuro-rehabilitative measures in childhood. Robot-assisted rehabilitation in combination with virtual reality can complement conventional therapies and provide a task-specific training, with a high number of repetitions over a prolonged time period. The advantage of virtual reality is that it can provide a real time feedback about the patient's performance. Furthermore, challenging virtual scenarios especially motivate young patients to continue with otherwise monotonous exercises. Preliminary findings indicate that robot-assisted training in children with central motor impairment could be beneficial, but conclusive evidence about its efficacy is still missing.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
