Scholarcy highlights

  • This paper is focused on the multimodal analysis of patient performance, carried out by means of robotic technology and wearable sensors, and aims at providing quantitative measure of biomechanical and motion planning features of arm motor control following rehabilitation
  • Upper-limb robotic therapy was administered to 24 community-dwelling persons with chronic stroke
  • Performance indices on patient motor performance were computed from data recorded with the InMotion robotic machine and a magneto-inertial sensor
  • Motor planning issues were investigated by means of techniques of motion decomposition into submovements
  • Robotic outcome measures showed a significant improvement of kinematic motor performance; improvement of dynamic components was more significant in resistive motion and highly correlated with MP
