Computer and visual interface development for Wrist Gimbal forearm and wrist exoskeleton
Stroke is the leading cause of long-term adult disability in the U.S., with an annual cost estimated at $69 billion. Neuroplasticity of the brain allows stroke patients to regain lost motor function, but does require intensive therapy protocols. The outcome of motor rehabilitation strongly depends on the dose of exercises, which is commonly limited by high costs associated with both traditional and robot-aided therapy protocols. Development of cost-efficient rehabilitation robots coupled with engaging visual interfaces carries the potential to improve accessibility of robot-aided therapy protocols ...
