There is considerable evidence which directly links functional recovery from a stroke to the duration, frequency, regularity, and intensity of physical (motion and force) interactions in a rehabilitation regimen. To this end,(More)
The overall goal of our research is to create a low-cost, home-based diagnostic and rehabilitation tool (see video) to assist the rapid functional recovery of people with Upper Limb (UL) dysfunction (due to muscular dystrophy and stroke) – the diagnostic aspect of which is discussed in this paper. Viewed in the broader context of robot-assisted(More)
