Movements of upper limbs are complicated, various and indispensable for daily activities. For patients with impairment of their upper limb, rehabilitation along with medical treatment is needed to recover function. For elderly as well, training is needed to keep their ADL or social activities. Application of robotics and virtual reality technology makes possible for new training methods and exercises and for quantitative evaluations to enhance the qualitative effect of training. However it is… CONTINUE READING
