Brief Description:
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
workshop 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 workshop will include a series of speakers with expertise
in upper and lower extremity rehabilitation robotics representing both
engineering and clinical research labs. The tutorial will conclude with a
tour of Interactive-Motion Technologies, a company (founded by co-organizers
Hogan and Krebs) committed to developing advanced and effective technologies
that enable rehabilitation professionals to achieve optimal patient
outcomes.  

Target audience:
This workshop 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.
