Advancing technology and robotic development have made it a very exciting time for the field of rehabilitation and neurorecovery after injury. Technology has changed the way that we assess our patients as well as how we optimize care delivery. It creates opportunities and environments that benefit from the intersection of engineering, research, and clinical application in a very meaningful and productive way.
This two-day symposium is designed to highlight the work that is being done in development, research and clinical implementation of various technologies and robotics. World renown experts in these fields will discuss the process of developing new technologies, the research to support use of technology and clinicians will discuss selection and application of technology in the clinic.
Conference Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this symposium, participants should be able to:
1. describe the rationale for using robotic devices in neurorehabilitation
2. describe basic design features and operation of rehabilitation robotic devices
3. list several current devices used in neurorehabilitation
4. differentiate between an exoskeleton device and an end-effector device
5. list (2) examples of how robotic devices can be used to assess human function
6. list (2) examples of present limitations of robotic devices in neurorehabilitation applications
