Abstract:

Task-oriented repetitive movements can improve muscle strength and movement coordination in patients with impairments due to neurological lesions. The application of robotics and automation technology can serve to assist, enhance, evaluate, and document the rehabilitation of movements. This article provides an overview of existing devices that can support the movement therapy of the upper extremities in subjects with neurological pathologies. The devices are critically compared with respect to technical function, clinical applicability, and if existing clinical outcomes.
