Robotics Rehabilitation in Virtual Environments

We will present the Rutgers Master Glove, The Rutgers Ankle, and the Rutgers Arm, which are wearable systems used in rehabilitation. Exercises developed for the above systems are game-like simulations that keep the patient motivated for the long durations needed to achieve progress. Pilot clinical study results on musculo-skeletal and post-stroke patients will be included.
