OBJECTIVE: The positive effects on motor cortical excitability of stimulating proprioception with tendon vibration therapy have previously been reported in healthy individuals and in chronic stroke patient (Marconi et al., 2008 and 2011). The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of a protocol of tendon vibration therapy in a neurorehabilitation service, with a view to proceeding to an efficacy study. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a prospective, single-centre study, including 11 patients, 8 men, mean age 61,7±10,6, with upper limb motor deficit secondary to a first stroke (5 ischaemic)...

BACKGROUND: We evaluated the effectiveness of robotic-assisted motion and activity in additional to Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM), of the upper limb in post stroke inpatients. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial. Fifty-four patients, 57% female (mean ± SD age: 71 ±12 years), with upper limb function defecit post stroke. The experimental group received a passive mobilization of the upper limb through the robotic device ARMEO Spring and the control group received PRM for 6 consecutive weeks (5 days/week) in addition to traditional PRM...

BACKGROUND: Robotic exoskeletons are increasingly being used in objective and quantitative assessment of upper limb (UL) movements. A set of instrumental indices computed during robot-assisted reaching tasks with the Armeo®Spring has been proven to assess UL functionality. The aim of this study was to test the construct validity of this indices-based UL assessment when used with patients who have had a stroke. METHODS: Forty-four 45- to 79-year-old stroke patients with a Wolf Motor Function Test ability score (WMFT-FAS) ranging from 10 to 75 and a Motricity Index (MI) ranging from 14 to 33 at shoulder and elbow were enrolled, thus covering a wide range of impairments...

This paper was designed to report the results of the application of two therapeutic modalities for the rehabilitation of 44 patients presenting with post-stroke locomotor disorders in the form of spastic hemiparesis. The patients allocated to the main group were treated with the use of the new kinesiotherapeutic methods including cryomassage and the Armeo robotic complex. The patients of the control group had to perform traditional therapeutic physical exercises in combination with classical massage and remedial gymnastics...

BACKGROUND: The Armeo Power, a rehabilitation exoskeleton that allows early treatment of motor disabilities, provides intelligent arm support in a large 3-dimensional work space, thus enabling patients to perform intensive, repetitive, and goal-oriented exercises. This device could efficiently induce new connections and facilitate plasticity phenomena potentiation. Knowledge of the potential brain plasticity reservoir after brain damage constitutes a prerequisite for an optimal rehabilitation strategy...

INTRODUCTION: This article is part of the Focus Theme of Methods of Information in Medicine on "Methodologies, Models and Algorithms for Patients Rehabilitation". OBJECTIVES: The great potential of robots in extracting quantitative and meaningful data is not always exploited in clinical practice. The aim of the present work is to describe a simple parameter to assess the performance of subjects during upper limb robotic training exploiting data automatically recorded by the robot, with no additional effort for patients and clinicians...

BACKGROUND: Few systematic studies describe rehabilitation trainings for upper limb in diplegic children with cerebral palsy (CP), who - especially once grown up - are often not considered as a target for rehabilitation interventions. AIM: In this pilot study, we describe the details and the effectiveness of an intensive, technology assisted intervention for upper limb. SETTING: The treatment combines the utilization of Armeo® Spring with a training focused on hand/finger fluency and dexterity in a pre-post treatment experimental design...

BACKGROUND: Robotic rehabilitation devices for upper limb function (ULF) provide global indicators of a patient's ability, but the temporal evolution of motion related to motor control is disregarded. OBJECTIVE: To determine normative values for indices of accuracy, speed and smoothness in the evaluation of upper limb function. METHODS: Twenty-five healthy individuals performed the Armeo®Spring device "Vertical Capture" task. Custom stand-alone software was developed to provide the following indices: global Hand Path Ratio (HPR), local HPR in the target area (locHPR), vertical and horizontal overshoot (vertOS, horOS), maximum and mean velocity (maxVel, meanVel), mean/maximum velocity, number of peaks in velocity profiles (NVelPeaks) and normalized jerk (NormJerk)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of a gravity-supported, computer-enhanced device (Armeo® Spring) for upper limb rehabilitation in chronic stroke patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We included 23 chronic hemiparetic patients (chronicity: 328 ± 90.8 days; distribution: 17 men and 6 women) aged 54.6 ± 9.5 years, who had sustained ischaemic stroke (n=12) or haemorrhagic stroke (n=11). All patients completed 36 one-hour sessions using the Armeo® Spring system. Arm movement was assessed at the beginning and end of the treatment programme and once more 4 months later...

BACKGROUND: Robotic and non-robotic training devices are increasingly being used in the rehabilitation of upper limb function in subjects with neurological disorders. As well as being used for training such devices can also provide ongoing assessments during the training sessions. Therefore, it is mandatory to understand the reliability and validity of such measurements when used in a clinical setting. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of movement measures as assessed in the Armeo Spring system for the eventual application to the rehabilitation of patients suffering from cervical spinal cord injury (SCI)...

Robotic rehabilitation devices have been suggested as a tool to increase the amount of rehabilitation delivered after a neurological injury. Clinical robotic rehabilitation studies of the upper extremity have generally focused on stroke survivors. We present the results of a multi-center pilot study where an upper-limb robotic rehabilitation device (Armeo Spring®, Hocoma AG) was incorporated into the rehabilitation program of 12 subjects with sub-acute cervical spinal cord injury (motor level C4-C6, AIS A-D)...

Upper limb robotic rehabilitation devices can collect quantitative data about the user's movements. Identifying relationships between robotic sensor data and manual clinical assessment scores would enable more precise tracking of the time course of recovery after injury and reduce the need for time-consuming manual assessments by skilled personnel. This study used measurements from robotic rehabilitation sessions to predict clinical scores in a traumatic cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) population. A retrospective analysis was conducted on data collected from subjects using the Armeo Spring (Hocoma, AG) in three rehabilitation centers...

BACKGROUND: Few research in multiple sclerosis (MS) has focused on physical rehabilitation of upper limb dysfunction, though the latter strongly influences independent performance of activities of daily living. Upper limb rehabilitation technology could hold promise for complementing traditional MS therapy. Consequently, this pilot study aimed to examine the feasibility of an 8-week mechanical-assisted training program for improving upper limb muscle strength and functional capacity in MS patients with evident paresis...
