Hand of Hope - Robotic arm After Stroke Rehabilitation Exercise

Published on Jan 11, 2015

Hand of Hope is sEMG-driven robotic arm, which helps patients to recover after stroke. It detects patient's intention to move the hand via EMG signals and following the concept of neuroplasticity, helps people in motor re-learning. It received numerous internationally recognized scientific awards and its effectiveness has been proven by several independent clinical and research studies. Learn more about Hand of Hope on

FINGER Stroke Rehabilitation Robot Demo

Published on Feb 13, 2014

After suffering a stroke, many patients will be left with functional impairment requiring rehabilitation. Robotic devices may have an important role in assisting in stroke patients with physical therapy, but also have the potential to collect valuable information on the efficacy of rehabilitation techniques.

In new research published in BioMed Central's Journal of Neuroengineering and Rehabilitation, Eric Wolbrecht from the University of Idaho, USA, David Reinkensmeyer from the University of California, Irvine, USA, and colleagues describe the development and preliminary testing of a new robot called 'FINGER', which can assist with finger rehabilitation.

Find out more about FINGER in this Q&A with Wolbrecht and Reinkensmeyer on BioMed Central's online magazine Biome.

Robots Help Stroke Victims Regain Use of Arms - Hi-tech

Published on May 6, 2015

Introduced two decades ago for patients with neurological disorders, rehabilitation robotics is now a relatively widespread recovery method for patients.

At the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London, robots are used to help stroke victims regain the use of their arms.

Exoskeletons are attached to computer games specially designed to exercise specific sets of upper body muscles. At least 500 repetitions of a movement are needed to make any lasting change.

There is Life After Stroke. Using Robotics to Help Rehabilitation

Published on Jun 9, 2013

Dr Sean Dukelow uses robotics to assess stroke patients for rehabilitation. With support from the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Dr. Dukelow, an assistant professor at the University of Calgary, is improving assessment methods in order to treat patients more effectively and help them recover. There is life after stroke.

Stroke Survivor Learns to Walk Again With Robotic Leg

Published on Dec 27, 2013

A stroke survivor is learning to walk again with the help of a revolutionary robotic leg which predicts her movements. Brave Sue Sandars, 51, almost entirely lost the use of her left arm and leg following a blood clot in her brain. But thanks to the mind-boggling contraption - and hours of hard work - determined Sue is striding towards her dream of ditching her wheelchair for good. One of just two of its kind in the UK, the thigh-high device is controlled by a super-sensitive insole in her trainer which decodes her intended manoeuvre through tiny initial movements. The £30,000 gadget then instantly moves - as if reading her mind - doing some of the work needed to help the wearer walk or stand up.

The BONES Robot for Stroke Rehabilitation Therapy (UCI)

Uploaded on Dec 18, 2011

This is a short compilation of videos taken during the construction and testing of the BONES robot. BONES (Biomimetic Orthosis for the Neurorehabilitation of the Elbow and Shoulder) is a 4-DOF exoskeleton for for post-stroke rehabilitation. With the modular 2-DOF wrist attachment, it becomes a 6-DOF upper-extremity rehab system. It was developed by the BioRobotics Lab at UCI.

Rehabilitating Stroke Patients With Stimulation and Robots - Dr. Matthew Fink

Uploaded on Aug 26, 2009

Dr. Matthew Fink, the Chief of the Division of Stroke and Critical Care Neurology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City, discusses two emerging therapies, often used in tandem, to help stroke patients regain their lost ability to move limbs.

Both techniques encourage the brain to grow new cells, which facilitate movement. With the first technique, physicians stimulate the surface of the brain with either electrical or magnetic current. In the second technique, robots are used to repeatedly move a limb, also sparking the brain to grow new cells.
