This study evaluates the effects of robot-assisted therapy for adults more than 6 months after stroke on upper limb functioning. Half of the participants will receive robot-assisted therap...
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...
Deficits in ankle control after stroke can lead to foot drop, resulting in inefficient, aberrant gait and an elevated falls risk. Using a novel ankle robot and newly invented adaptive cont...
Video-assisted feedback (VAF) is an educational method used by educators in various areas of medicine. It is possible to gain technical and non-technical skills for practical applications ...
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...
Medical robotics has progressively become more compelling in modern orthopaedic surgery. Several studies comparing robot-assisted (RA) and freehand (FH) conventional techniques for pedicle screw fixat...
This description of "soft robotics" is not intended to be a conventional review, in the sense of a comprehensive technical summary of a developing field. Rather, its objective is to describe soft robo...
Surgical instruments greatly impact the performance of robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery (RMIS) because they operate on tissues.
Future health-care projection projects a significant growth in population by 2020. Health care has seen an exponential growth in technology to address the growing population with the decreasing number...
Beating-heart intracardiac surgery promises significant benefits for patients compared with cardiopulmonary bypass based procedures. However, the fast motions of the heart introduce serious challenges...
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.
Therapy assisted by the use of a horse and/or its movement, including equine-assisted psychotherapy, horseback riding, and hippotherapy.
Computer-assisted study of methods for obtaining useful quantitative solutions to problems that have been expressed mathematically.
Computer-assisted processing of electric, ultrasonic, or electronic signals to interpret function and activity.
