[robotics-worldwide] Register! ASME DSCC 2010: Workshop on Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Robotics for Upper and Lower Extremity
omalleym at rice.edu
Wed Aug 11 15:15:18 PDT 2010
Workshop on Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Robotics for Upper and Lower
Sponsored by the
Robotics Technical committee of the ASME Dynamic Systems and Controls
2010 Dynamic Systems and Controls Conference
2010 IFAC Symposium on Mechatronic Systems
September 12, 2010
The field of rehabilitation and therapeutic robotics has grown steadily over
the past decade, with significant clinical contributions. Studies have
demonstrated both the efficacy and advantages of robotics for assessing and
treating motor impairment. There is significant opportunity for engineers in
this area, and there has been a recent trend of increasing governmental
agency interest in funding such efforts.
The purpose of this full‐day tutorial is to provide a concise yet broad‐
based introduction to key topics in the field of rehabilitation and
therapeutic robotics, such as basic neuroscience and rehabilitation,
impairment based approaches, design and control of devices from a
mechatronics perspective, and clinical implications. The tutorial will
include a series of speakers with expertise in upper and lower extremity
rehabilitation robotics representing both engineering and clinical research
This tutorial is intended for researchers in the areas of dynamics systems,
controls, robotics, and mechatronics who have not necessarily worked in this
area of rehabilitation and therapeutic robotics. The content will provide
some review of the state of the art without precluding discussion of
outstanding challenges in the field.

For those people who just want to attend the workshops on Sunday, September
12, they can register for workshops only through the conference registration
site. But to use the conference registration system, one still needs to get
an ASME-DSCD papercept PIN (or IFAC Mechatronics papercept PIN) prior to
registering just for the workshops.
