Robot combines sensors with adaptive mechanics for smarter stroke rehab
Strokes often cause serious disabilities in those afflicted, and rehab requires stamina from the therapists as well as patients. Relearning the skill of walking means therapists end up resembling soldiers rescuing war wounded, often in pairs holding up a patient and prodding the movement of the legs with various means. This is a hard job that a collaborative effort in Europe hopes to overcome with a new robot that has a bunch of features to improve stroke therapy.
