Non-invasive control interfaces for intention detection in active movement-assistive devices

Active movement-assistive devices aim to increase the quality of life for patients with neuromusculoskeletal disorders. This technology requires interaction between the user and the device through a control interface that detects the user’s movement intention. Researchers have explored a wide variety of invasive and non-invasive control interfaces. To summarize the wide spectrum...

Evaluation of EMG, force and joystick as control interfaces for active arm supports

Background The performance capabilities and limitations of control interfaces for the operation of active movement-assistive devices remain unclear. Selecting an optimal interface for an application requires a thorough understanding of the performance of multiple control interfaces. Methods In this study the performance of EMG-, force- and joystick-based control interfaces were...

Influence of gravity compensation training on synergistic movement patterns of the upper extremity after stroke, a pilot study

BackgroundThe majority of stroke patients have to cope with impaired arm function. Gravity compensation of the arm instantaneously affects abnormal synergistic movement patterns. The goal of the present study is to examine whether gravity compensated training improves unsupported arm function.MethodsSeven chronic stroke patients received 18 half-hour sessions of gravity...

An explorative, cross-sectional study into abnormal muscular coupling during reach in chronic stroke patients

Background In many stroke patients arm function is limited, which can be related to an abnormal coupling between shoulder and elbow joints. The extent to which this can be translated to activities of daily life (ADL), in terms of muscle activation during ADL-like movements, is rather unknown. Therefore, the present study examined the occurrence of abnormal coupling on functional...
