Stroke Rehabilitation: Therapy Robots and Assistive Devices


Klamroth-Marganska, Verena (2018). Stroke Rehabilitation: Therapy Robots and Assistive Devices. Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, 1065:579-587.

Abstract

Motor impairments after stroke are often persistent and disabling, and women are less likely to recover and show poorer functional outcomes. To regain motor function after stroke, rehabilitation robots are increasingly integrated into clinics. The devices fall into two main classes: robots developed to train lost motor function after stroke (therapy devices) and robots designed to compensate for lost skills (i.e., assistive devices). The article provides an overview of therapeutic options with robots for motor rehabilitation after stroke.
