Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes our efforts to apply robotics and automation technology to assist, enhance, quantify, and document neuro-rehabilitation. It reviews a pilot clinical trial involving twenty stroke patients with a prototype robot-aided rehabilitation facility developed at MIT and tested at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. In particular, we present a few results: (a) on the patient's tolerance of the procedure, (b) whether peripheral manipulation of the impaired limb influences brain recovery, (c) on the development of a robot-aided assessment procedure.
