Clinical Insights For Rehabilitation Engineers (CIFRE)
Statement of Objectives (max ½ page): Technical design and development of arm rehabilitation robotics and related devices has evolved and expanded rapidly over recent years. Robotic devices are increasingly sophisticated and have many applications in supporting neuro-rehabilitation. Recent evidence from neurophysiological research and clinical studies has influenced rehabilitation robotic interventions for the arm, providing valuable knowledge about how to apply technology-based therapy for people with neurological disorders, such as stroke and multiple sclerosis. However, clinical use of such devices remains limited, despite increasing evidence for effectiveness. The importance of the question “what should rehabilitation devices actually do?” has been recognized during previous ICORR conferences. This workshop now aims to address this question, seeking to inform people involved in design, development and application of rehabilitation robotics about the clinical perspective, drawing from the extensive experience of well known researchers with professional backgrounds in physical therapy and human movement science. The workshop will provide a comprehensive view from neurophysiology to users’ needs and expectations. Besides informing the audience, the workshop is intended to involve the audience in a lively debate about the question: What is the ideal arm robot for neuro-rehabilitation? To stimulate this, the workshop starts with a presentation of several patient cases. At the end of this workshop, we hope that the organizers and audience together will be able to answer this question.

Abstract

Statement of Objectives (max ½ page): Technical design and development of arm rehabilitation robotics and related devices has evolved and expanded rapidly over recent years. Robotic devices are increasingly sophisticated and have many applications in supporting neuro-rehabilitation. Recent evidence from neurophysiological research and clinical studies has influenced rehabilitation robotic interventions for the arm, providing valuable knowledge about how to apply technology-based therapy for people with neurological disorders, such as stroke and multiple sclerosis. However, clinical use of such devices remains limited, despite increasing evidence for effectiveness. The importance of the question “what should rehabilitation devices actually do?” has been recognized during previous ICORR conferences. This workshop now aims to address this question, seeking to inform people involved in design, development and application of rehabilitation robotics about the clinical perspective, drawing from the extensive experience of well known researchers with professional backgrounds in physical therapy and human movement science. The workshop will provide a comprehensive view from neurophysiology to users’ needs and expectations. Besides informing the audience, the workshop is intended to involve the audience in a lively debate about the question: What is the ideal arm robot for neuro-rehabilitation? To stimulate this, the workshop starts with a presentation of several patient cases. At the end of this workshop, we hope that the organizers and audience together will be able to answer this question.
