Stroke Rehabilitation Based on Patient-Therapist Interaction

Study Description

Robot-Assisted Stroke Rehabilitation Based on Patient-Therapist Interactions

Our study goal is to assess natural patient-therapist interactions in order to map such human-human activities to robot-human interactions. Critical to accomplishing this mapping will be determining the feasibility of a humanoid robot interacting with a patient in a more intuitive and flexible way, while concomitantly investigating the issue of safe contact and release.

Device - Rehab InterCap system and 3D Kinect

The therapist will conduct a therapy session which will consist of various activities of daily living. During the session, the motion of the therapist and patients will be collected with a custom motion capture system (Rehab InterCap) and 3D visual mapping may take place using the Kinect device, audio will be recorded, and basic measurements of length (i.e. the distance from a participant's shoulder to elbow) will be taken. Patients and therapists will wear the sensors to capture their arm movem ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
