On the assessment of coordination between upper extremities: towards a common language between rehabilitation engineers, clinicians and neuroscientists

Well-developed coordination of the upper extremities is critical for function in everyday life. Interlimb coordination is an intuitive, yet subjective concept that refers to spatio-temporal relationships between kinematic, kinetic and physiological variables of two or more limbs executing a motor task with a common goal. While both the clinical and neuroscience communities agree on ...

Robot-aided assessment of lower extremity functions: a review

The assessment of sensorimotor functions is extremely important to understand the health status of a patient and its change over time. Assessments are necessary to plan and adjust the therapy in order to maximize the chances of individual recovery. Nowadays, however, assessments are seldom used in clinical practice due to administrative constraints or to inadequate validity, ...

Enhanced assessment of limb neuro-mechanics via a haptic display

Current state-of-the-art quantitative assessments of abnormal neuro-mechanics (e.g., spasticity, rigidity, dystonia) require sophisticated measurement systems that, together with the lengthiness of the data acquisition, make these approaches impractical for the clinical setting. Our long-term goal is to create a tool that enhances the capability of therapists to diagnose abnormal ...
