Abstract

The status of motor function in stroke survivors and the effect of any therapeutic intervention are generally measured by physiotherapists using clinical assessment scales that probe specific aspects of a subject's motor behavior. Although they are widely accepted, these measurement tools are limited by interrater and intrarater reliability and are time-consuming to apply. This paper analyzes the changes in movement kinematics and kinetics during robot-aided neurorehabilitation of subjects after stroke and verifies the possibility of estimating outcome measures by means of a set of robot measured parameters.
