BACKGROUND Neurorehabilitation studies suggest that manipulation of error signals during practice can stimulate improvement in coordination after stroke. OBJECTIVE To test visual display and robotic technology that delivers augmented error signals during training, in participants with stroke. METHODS A total of 26 participants with chronic hemiparesis(More)
Recent research that tests interactive devices for prolonged therapy practice has revealed new prospects for robotics combined with graphical and other forms of biofeedback. Previous human-robot interactive systems have required different software commands to be implemented for each robot leading to unnecessary developmental overhead time each time a new(More)
Here we present results where nineteen stroke survivors with chronic hemiparesis simultaneously employed the trio of patient, therapist, and machine. Massed practice combined with error augmentation, where haptic (robotic forces) and graphic (visual display) distortions are used to enhance the feedback of error, was compared to massed practice alone. The(More)
A pilot study was conducted to test the feasibility of using electromyographic signals to drive an active orthosis for hand therapy after stroke. Five stroke survivors with chronic hemiparesis completed 18 one-hour training sessions over 6 weeks. Activation patterns of a long finger flexor muscle and a long finger extensor muscle controlled an orthosis, the(More)
