Abstract

The present study is aimed at developing new rehabilitation protocols to be used in post-stroke robotic-aided therapy. In the recent past, it has been suggested that the use of robotic training forces that enhance error instead of reducing it, could stimulate new learning and feedback strategies at the base of an effective motor recovery. Starting from these findings, in this work two different robotic-aided therapies were compared: the first was based on the constraint induced movement therapy, the second employed an unstable training force field increasing path errors performed by the subjects. The results shows that the use of the unstable divergent force field can increase the recovery, especially in people with mild level of impairment.
