Rehabilitation assessments for patients with stroke in Australian hospitals do not always reflect the patients' rehabilitation requirements.

To examine the frequency and factors associated with patients with stroke in Australian hospitals receiving documented rehabilitation assessments; the criteria used when rehabilitation was not recomme...

Efficacy of Feedback-Controlled Robotics-Assisted Treadmill Exercise to Improve Cardiovascular Fitness Early After Stroke: A Randomized Controlled Pilot Trial.

Cardiovascular fitness is greatly reduced after stroke. Although individuals with mild to moderate impairments benefit from conventional cardiovascular exercise interventions, there is a lack of effec...

Simulation-Based Training in Robot-Assisted Surgery: Current Evidence of Value and Potential Trends for the Future.

Robot-assisted surgery has changed the landscape of surgery. Implementation of robotics into most surgical specialties has left many educators challenged to develop the tools necessary to train and cr...

Ways to Psychosomatic Rehabilitation - Differential Treatment Selection between Psychosomatic Acute Care and Rehabilitation.

Consecutive admissions to the psychosomatic departments of 5 hospital units in southwest Germany registered between October 2012 and October 2013 were asked to participate in a study investigating the...

Beyond the hospital doors: Improving long-term outcomes for elderly trauma patients.

Elderly trauma patients (TPs) are the fastest growing trauma population, increasing the need for postacute care rehabilitation. For TP, discharge to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) has been associat...

Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Early After Stroke Using Feedback-controlled Robotics-assisted Treadmill Exercise

The propose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and the clinical efficiency of feedback-controlled robotics-assisted treadmill exercise (RATE) technology for cardiovascular rehabi...

Brain and Coordination Changes Induced By Robotics and FES Treatment Following Stroke

The long-range goal of this work is to identify how to target treatment so that the brain is functionally re-organized to produce movement. This study will compare treatment response to r...

Arm Robotics in Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation

This purpose of this study is to determine the outcomes of the first-known application of robotic therapy in the rehabilitation following rotator cuff repair, using a novel vertical obliqu...

Clinical Study to Evaluate the Catheter Robotics Amigo for Performing Right-Sided Electrophysiology Mapping Studies

The purpose of this clinical study is to collect safety and performance data to support a demonstration of substantial equivalence of the Catheter Robotics Remote Catheter System to predic...

Robotics For Rehabilitation Therapy

The purpose of this study is to develop an upper extremity robotic training system for use by people with stroke to practice arm and hand movement in the clinic.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The diagnosis and treatment of human responses of individuals and groups to actual or potential health problems with the characteristics of altered functional ability and altered life-style. (American Nurses Association & Association of Rehabilitation Nurses. Standards of Rehabilitation Nursing Practice, 1986, p.2)

The application of electronic, computerized control systems to mechanical devices designed to perform human functions. Formerly restricted to industry, but nowadays applied to artificial organs controlled by bionic (bioelectronic) devices, like automated insulin pumps and other prostheses.

Monitoring of rate of occurrence of specific conditions to assess the stability or change in health levels of a population. It is also the study of disease rates in a specific cohort, geographic area, population subgroup, etc. to estimate trends in larger population. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)

Facilities which provide programs for rehabilitating the mentally or physically disabled individuals.
