Systematic review of the effect of robot-aided therapy on recovery of the hemiparetic arm after stroke.
It is found that robot-aided therapy of the proximal upper limb improves short- and long-term motor control of the paretic shoulder and elbow in subacute and chronic patients; however, it is found no consistent influence on functional abilities. Expand
Training modalities in robot-mediated upper limb rehabilitation in stroke: a framework for classification based on a systematic review
A framework for categorisation of HRI modalities and features that will allow comparing their therapeutic benefits is proposed, and it is recommended that the HRI is better described and documented so that work of various teams can be considered in the same group and categories. Expand
Feasibility study into self-administered training at home using an arm and hand device with motivational gaming environment in chronic stroke
Findings indicate that home-based arm and hand training with physical support from a dynamic orthosis is a feasible tool to enable self-administered practice at home, allowing an increase in training dose with respect to treatment in supervised settings. Expand
Dampace: Design of an Exoskeleton for Force-Coordination Training in Upper-Extremity Rehabilitation
The Dampace exoskeleton combines functional exercises resembling activities of daily living with impairment-targeted force-coordination training. The goal of this paper is to evaluate the performanceExpand
Influence of gravity compensation on muscle activity during reach and retrieval in healthy elderly.
Gravity compensation only influenced the level of muscle activity but not the muscle activation pattern in terms of timing, which may stimulate early and intensive training during rehabilitation. Expand
Influence of Gravity Compensation on Muscle Activation Patterns During Different Temporal Phases of Arm Movements of Stroke Patients
Gravity compensation did not affect general patterns of muscle activation in this sample of stroke patients, probably since they had adequate function to complete the task without arm support, and may be a valuable modality in conventional or robot-aided therapy to increase the intensity of training for mildly impaired patients.

Design, development and deployment of a hand/wrist exoskeleton for home-based rehabilitation after stroke - SCRIPT project
The main goal is to demonstrate design and development steps involved in a complex intervention, while examining feasibility of using an instrumented orthotic device for home-based rehabilitation after stroke, and it is evident that stroke patients were able to use the system in their homes. Expand
The experience of living with stroke and using technology: opportunities to engage and co-design with end users
This study showed that prior to the development of technology, it is important to engage with potential users to identify user requirements and subsequently envision system requirements based on users’ views. Expand
Influence of gravity compensation training on synergistic movement patterns of the upper extremity after stroke, a pilot study
A decreased strength of involuntary coupling might contribute to the increased arm function after training, and the used training setup is simple and affordable and is suitable to use in clinical settings. Expand
Effect of position feedback during task-oriented upper-limb training after stroke: five-case pilot study.
Although augmented feedback use was limited, kinematic outcome measures and movement performance during training increased in all subjects, which was comparable with other studies. Expand
