Robotic Therapy is on the Rise. Here's why.
If you work in physical rehabilitation, you’ve probably noticed a major shift in thinking regarding stroke rehab.
These days, it’s generally accepted that high-intensity dosing is vital for optimum recovery following strokes. The problem is that achieving these high-dosage levels is extremely difficult using traditional techniques.
While the demand for increased dosage continues to grow, contextual and job-related demands remain the same. That makes the problem of meeting intensity demands—without increasing physical strain on therapists—a major challenge.
Active-assistive robotic therapy is changing that.
