Abstract

Patient motivation is an important factor in rehabilitation. The difficulty level of the motor task, the awareness of the performance obtained, and the quantity and quality of feedbacks presented to the patient can influence patient motivation and produce different ways of acting and different performances. This study presents a Progressive Task Regulation algorithm able to evaluate the patient's performance during training and automatically change the features of the reaching movement, so as to adapt automatically the difficulty level of the motor task to the patient's ability. Use of the progressive task regulation algorithm should promote patient motivation throughout the course of treatment.
