Haptic guidance in robot-assisted therapy does not only relieve the therapist from physical work load and increase the possible training intensity. Haptic guidance can also be used to adapt the task difficulty level to the patient's abilities, which is assumed to maximize the learning rate. Hereby, task difficulty can address either the patient's physical(More)
Age-related decline in gray and white brain matter goes together with cognitive depletion. To influence cognitive functioning in elderly, several types of physical exercise and nutritional intervention have been performed. This paper systematically reviews the potential additive and complementary effects of nutrition/nutritional supplements and physical(More)
Muscle weakness is one of the major deficits after stroke but specific strength training is seldom included in robot-assisted rehabilitation. At the same time, the emergence of robotic devices for stroke therapy offers technical possibilities for strength training. We propose a control strategy for strength training that is based on a viscous force field(More)
Robot-assisted arm therapy is increasingly applied in neurorehabilitation. The reason for this development over the last decades was that robots relieve the therapist from hard physical work while the training intensity can be increased. Importantly, an increase in training intensity is closely linked to functional improvements of the patient. However,(More)
