Abstract:

Task-oriented repetitive movements can improve movement performance in patients with neurological or orthopaedic lesions. The application of robotics can serve to assist, enhance, evaluate, and document neurological and orthopaedic rehabilitation of movements. This paper presents new robotic approaches applied to the rehabilitation of gait and upper-extremity functions in patients with movement disorders. A special focus is directed to the application of “patient-cooperative” strategies, which takes into conideration the patient’s intention and efforts rather than imposing any predefined movement. It is hypothesized that cooperative robotic approaches can improve the therapeutic outcome compared to classical rehabilitation strategies.
