Estimating the patient s contribution during robot assisted therapy

  • Aim

    • Develop methods to quantify patient’s contribution during robot-assisted therapy by combining kinematic measures and the motor assistance applied.

  • Relevance

    • Assistive robots with sophisticated controllers are used in neurorehabilitation to assist and cooperate with the patient during therapy.

    • Difficult for patient to judge to what extent robot contributes to execution of movement.


Method

Method

  • Created inverse dynamic models of robot and passive human arm to:

    • Calculate required torques to move robot and arm.

    • Build, together with recorded motor torque, metric (in percentage) that represents patient’s contribution to movement.

  • Evaluated metric with 12 nondisabled subjects and 7 patients with neurological problems.


Results

Results

  • Compared results with common performance metric.

  • Estimation shows very satisfying results for both groups, even though arm model was strongly simplified.


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Displaying this metric to patients during therapy might motivate them to actively participate in training.
