Exoskeleton-assisted rehabilitation can be beneficial in treating stroke survivors.
Exoskeletons are (robotic) structures that are attached to the joints in order to substitute muscle power. We report on how exoskeletons are used in the rehabilitation of stroke patients, injury prevention and individuals with spinal cord injury or lower-limb paralysis.
Researchers have inserted small magnetic beads into muscle tissue within an amputated residuum for more precise control of prosthetic limbs.
Preliminary findings by Kessler researchers show that the use of a robotic exoskeleton during inpatient rehabilitation for acute stroke may improve function.
Experts at Kessler Foundation led the first pilot randomized controlled trial of robotic-exoskeleton assisted exercise rehabilitation effects on mobility, cognition, and brain connectivity in people with substantial MS-related disability.
Neurolutions IpsiHand exoskeleton uniquely leverages brain-computer interface technology for chronic stroke rehabilitation
Researchers have demonstrated that high-dose therapy gait training using robotic exoskeletons may aid early rehabilitation for acute stroke.
Researchers have developed a system that combines a brain-computer interface and a robotic arm that responds to the actual intentions of treated patients.
Researchers have shown that gait training using robotic exoskeletons improved motor function in adolescents and young adults with acquired brain injury.
Exoskeletal-assisted walking is safe, feasible, and effective in individuals disabled by spinal cord injury.
Researchers have developed a robotic exoskeleton that improves the lives of people with limited or no ability to move due to neurological and/or physiological disorders.
Researchers have published the results of a trial of the ReWalk ReStore soft robotic exosuit for gait training in individuals undergoing post-stroke rehabilitation.
Loss of strength and muscle wastage is currently an unavoidable part of getting older and has a significant impact on health and quality of life.
Exoskeletons are one technology with great potential - but is often developed for average people. So what about people who are small and thin, or tall and overweight?
A new line of wearable robotics - a lightweight version of the armor that comic hero Iron Man wears - could keep seniors on their feet longer.
A 4-limb robotic system controlled by brain signals helped a tetraplegic man to move his arms and walk using a ceiling-mounted harness for balance.
Scientists have developed a tiny pump that could play a big role in the development of autonomous soft robots, lightweight exoskeletons and smart clothing.
