    Robotics in Rehabilitation

    Rehabilitation robotics is a field of research dedicated to understanding and augmenting rehabilitation through the application of robotic devices. Rehabilitation robotics includes development of robotic devices tailored for assisting different sensorimotor functions[1](e.g. arm, hand,[2][3] leg, ankle[4]), development of different schemes of assisting therapeutic training,[5] and assessment of sensorimotor performance (ability to move)[6] of patient; here, robots are used mainly as therapy aids instead of assistive devices.[7] Rehabilitation using robotics is generally well tolerated by patients, and has been found to be an effective adjunct to therapy in individuals suffering from motor impairments, especially due to stroke.
    Rehabilitation robotics can be considered a specific focus of biomedical engineering, and a part of human-robot interaction. In this field, clinicians, therapists, and engineers collaborate to help rehabilitate patients.

    Prominent goals in the field include: developing implementable technologies that can be easily used by patients, therapists, and clinicians; enhancing the efficacy of clinician’s therapies; and increasing the ease of activities in the daily lives of patients.
