Improving robotics for neurorehabilitation: enhancing engagement, performance, and learning with auditory feedback
In Proceedings of the IEEE 12th International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics ICORR2011, pages 341346, Zurich, CH, June 29-July 1 2011

Abstract: This paper reports on an ongoing research collaboration between the University of Padua and the University of California Irvine, on the use of continuous auditory-feedback in robot-assisted neurorehabilitation of post-stroke patients. This feedback modality is mostly underexploited in current robotic rehabilitation systems, that usually implement very basic auditory feedback interfaces. The results of this research show that generating a proper sound cue during robot assisted movement training can help patients in improving engagement, performance and learning in the exercise.
