Design of a parallel-group balanced controlled trial to test the effects of assist-as-needed robotic therapy

Abstract

In this methods paper, we report on the design of a clinical study testing the efficacy of a newly developed control scheme for robot-aided rehabilitation. To measure the value added by a new control scheme, we pursued a parallel-group controlled clinical study design. This approach enables comparing the effects of the novel scheme, based on the Assist-As… (More)
