Novel Human-Centered Rehabilitation Robot with Biofeedback for Training and Assessment
We present the novel human-centered rehabilitation methods from the research as well as literature to provide the robot assisted rehabilitation control strategies and motor function assessment methods. The research is based on the upper extremity compound movements (UECM) rehabilitation training robot , which is applied to the rehabilitation of upper extremity functions in patients with movement disorders. So called “human-centered” or “patient-cooperative” strategies can take into account the patient’s individual situations, intentions and efforts rather than imposing predefined instructions. It is considered that such robot-assisted methods can improve the therapeutic outcome compared to classical rehabilitation methods.
