Tailored, technological therapy: Physician and therapists point of view on robotic rehabilitation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Technological innovations are allowing rehabilitation to move toward more integrated processes, with improved efficiency and less long-term impairments. In particular, robot-mediated neurorehabilitation is a rapidly advancing field, which uses robotic systems to define new methods for treating neurological injuries, especially stroke. The use of robots in motor recovery can enhance rehabilitation, but it needs to be used according to well-defined neuroscientific principles. The field of robot-mediated neurorehabilitation brings challenges to both bioengineering and clinical practice (motor and cognitive). The aim of this scoping review is to better understand the role of the technology into application of rehabilitation principle, overcoming the dichotomy between traditional and technological intervention.
