Analysis of the Fugl-Meyer outcome measures assessing the effectiveness of robot-mediated stroke therapy
Robot-mediated therapies offer a new approach to neurorehabilitation. This paper analyses the Fugl-Meyer data from the Gentle/S project and finds that the two intervention phases (sling suspension and robot mediated therapy) ...
Multivariate analysis of the Fugl-Meyer outcome measures assessing the effectiveness of GENTLE/S robot-mediated stroke therapy
Robot-mediated therapies offer entirely new approaches to neurorehabilitation. In this paper we present the results obtained from trialling the GENTLE/S neurorehabilitation system assessed using the upper limb section of ...
The peg-in-hole : A VR-based haptic assessment for quantifying ED upper limb performance and skills
Assistive technologies (AT) have the potential to augment individual's life and to promote functional independence. However, in many cases, optimum use of an assistive technology device is restricted due to the difficulties ...
Minimum jerk trajectory control for rehabilitation and haptic applications
Smooth Trajectories are essential for safe interaction in between human and a haptic interface. Different methods and strategies have been introduced to create such smooth trajectories. This paper studies the creation of ...
Error correction movement for machine assisted stroke rehabilitation
(IOS Press, 2001)
Machine assisted physiotherapy has a great potential to improve the outcome of patients engaged on rehabilitation for upper limb motor impairment. In this paper we will present the concepts and tests carried out in order ...
The GENTLE/S project : A new method of delivering neuro-rehabilitation
(IOS Press, 2001)
Stroke is a leading cause of disability and in particular effects older people. Although the causes of stroke are well known and it is possible to reduce these risks. there is a need to improve rehabilitation techniques ...
