Robot-aided intensive training in post-stroke recovery
Aging Clinical and Experimental Research, 18(3):261265, 2006

Abstract: The successful motor rehabilitation of stroke patients requires an intensive and task-specific therapy approach. The plasticity of the adult human brain provides opportunities to enhance traditional rehabilitation programs for these individuals. Intensive robot-aided sensorimotor training may have a positive effect on reducing impairment and disability and increasing reorganization of the adult brain. This approach may therefore efficaciously complement standard post-stroke multidisciplinary programs as shown by recent experimental trials.
