Brain-machine interfaces (BMI) have recently been integrated within motor rehabilitation therapiesby actively involving the central nervous system (CNS) within the exercises. For instance, the onlined...
One of the hottest topics in rehabilitation robotics is that of proper control of prosthetic devices. Despite decades of research, the state of the art is dramatically behind the expectations. To shed...
Stroke rehabilitation has undergone a revolution over the last three decades. Cohort studies have consistently reinforced the importance of post-stroke rehabilitation to stimulate recovery, but the co...
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...
Exercise capacity is seriously reduced after stroke. While cardiopulmonary assessment and intervention strategies have been validated for the mildly and moderately impaired populations post-stroke, th...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
