  This course represents the state of the science and clinical practice in rehabilitation robotics applied in neurorecovery. It spans robot design history to present day soft-robotics, as well as clinical integration and practicalities, and robotic devices as assessment tools. Finally, hands-on practical sessions with the latest devices used clinically will be included. Limitations and future  directions in the field of rehabilitation robotics will be discussed. The symposium includes world leading clinicians and scientists in neurorehabilitation as well as engineering and human motor control.
