An Adaptive Home-Use Robotic Rehabilitation System for the Upper Body
Robotic rehabilitation systems have been developed to treat these musculoskeletal conditions, but limited availability prevents most patients from using them. The objective of this research was to create a home-use robotic rehabilitation system. Data was obtained in real-time from a Microsoft... Read more
