Lower-limb exoskeletons often use trajectory-tracking control to define the device's motion and assistance level. One challenge lies in ensuring a smooth and comfortable interaction between the user and the robotic device by defining a reference trajectory. While recent research has focused on generating individualized gait patterns based on...

In this work, we propose a method of processing patient input on discomfort level during robot shoulder physiotherapy into discomfort maps. These maps represent the patient's discomfort distribution throughout the range of motion of the shoulder, interpretable by both physiotherapists and robots. This method consists of three parts: the patient...

Within rehabilitation, there is a great need for a simple method to monitor wheelchair use, especially whether it is active or passive. For this purpose, an existing measurement technique was extended with a method for detecting self- or attendant-pushed wheelchair propulsion. The aim of this study was to validate this new detection method by...

Resident participation is essential for neighborhood rehabilitation. It requires the active involvement of residents and efficient management by organizers. To improve the effectiveness of resident participation, it is necessary to understand the critical success factors (CSFs) underlying it. However, previous research has examined the critical...

Purpose: eHealth-based exercise therapies were developed to increase stroke patients’ adherence to home-based motor rehabilitation. However, these eHealth tools face a rapid decrease in use after a couple of weeks. This study investigates stroke patients’ motivation for home-based upper extremity rehabilitation with eHealth tools and their...

In stroke rehabilitation, simple robotic devices hold the potential to increase the training dosage in group therapies and to enable continued therapy at home after hospital discharge. However, we identified a lack of portable and cost-effective devices that not only focus on improving motor functions but also address sensory deficits. Thus, we...

Repetitive, individual exercises can improve the functional ability of stroke survivors over the long term. With the aim of providing extra motivation to adhere to repetitive, individual rehabilitation, this paper presents a robotic coach for stroke rehabilitation. Our system uses the Pepper robot and performs one of twelve data-driven...

Upper-limb rehabilitation devices are essential in restoring and improving the motor function of hemiplegic patients. However, developing a product design that meets the needs of users is challenging. Current design tools and methods suffer from limitations such as a single model, poor synergy between integrated models, and subjective bias in...

Mangrove forests are important wetland ecosystems that inhabit intertidal zones within tropical and sub-tropical latitudes. They offer a diverse array of ecosystem services, including coastal protection and carbon sequestration. Despite their significance, global mangrove cover has declined in recent decades, prompting various restoration...

People that are recovering from a stroke need frequent and high-intensity training to regain their upper-limb capacity. This will eventually result in better performances and higher quality of their daily life. Robotic devices are often used to assist stroke patients in rehabilitation. The minimally-supervised portable hand trainer, which is...

The process of physical rehabilitation in most cases consists of visits to a physical therapist and exercises the patient is expected to perform at home. To increase or maintain strength or flexibility these exercises need to be performed regularly. Practice teaches us that not all patients succeed here. In this project, we look into what is...
