How Robotics Are Revolutionizing Rehabilitation


Robots are playing an increasingly important role in healthcare, helping people regain motor skills lost to injury. Examples include therapy robots that help injured patients regain their motor functionality, and stroke rehabilitation, through the application of advances in robotics and neuroscience, that restores movement. This 60-minute Technical Webinar from the editors of Medical Design Briefs looks at the technologies driving these robotic developments as well as some case studies and examples of robotic rehabilitation in action.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.

Speakers:

Hermano Igo Krebs, Ph.D., Principal Research Scientist/Lecturer, MIT, and IEEE Fellow
Sunil Agrawal, Ph.D., Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Rehabilitation/Regenerative Medicine, Columbia University

Moderator:
