Test-Retest Reliability of Kinematic Assessments for Upper Limb Robotic Rehabilitation

Author(s): T. Koeppel, O. Pila
Test-Retest Reliability of Kinematic Assessments for Upper Limb Robotic Rehabilitation 1000 359 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)
Robot-measured kinematic variables are increasingly used in neurorehabilitation to characterize motor recovery following stroke. However, few studies have evaluated the reliability of these kinematic variables. This study aimed at evaluating the test-retest reliability of typically-used robot-measured kinematic variables in healthy subjects (HS) and patients with stroke (SP). read more
