Design and commercialization of upper limbs rehabilitation robots
- Written by Julien Sapin
Many areas of medicine perceive in the progress of robotics, data processing and in the field of multimedia, an opportunity of developing robotic assistance tools to improve the therapist working conditions and to provide more efficient and better care to patients.
Physical and rehabilitation medicine, being aware of the above scientific advancement, has developed upper limbs rehabilitation robots.
Based on this observation, the AXINESIS project aims to develop and commercialize upper limbs rehabilitation robots for stroke patients. These robotic assistance tools complete the standard therapy with exercises that the patient can manage alone.
