Abstract

Stroke represents the leading cause of disability among the elderly in the industrialized world. Indeed, no more than the 40% of the stroke survivors is able to walk independently, and/or to properly use the upper limb, and only after having performed an appropriate rehabilitative treatment. Moreover, post-stroke cognitive deficits, including aphasia, aprassia and neglect, and other neuropsychiatric abnormalities may negatively impact on patients' quality of life One key principle of post-stroke neurorehabilitation is the repetitive creation of specific learning situations to promote mechanisms of neural plasticity in stroke recovery. Indeed, there is growing evidence of achieving a better outcome of neurorehabilitation with early initiation of treatment, high intensity, with specific goals and active therapies, and the coordinated work and multimodality of a specialized team. To this end, robotic neurorehabilitation has the potential for a greater impact on impairment due to easy deployment, its applicability across of a wide range of motor disability, its high measurement reliability, and the capacity to deliver high dosage and high intensity training protocols. Aim of this chapter is to provide a comprehensive overview on the potential role of assistive technology in post-stroke rehabilitation, focusing either on robotic gait and upper limp neurorehabilitation or computerized cognitive rehabilitation. Emerging and promising tools, including telerehabilitation and Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN), will be also discussed.
