In rehabilitation robotics, there have been several technological developments for various medical applications. Within these devices, we can find rehabilitation machines, orthoses, and exoskeletons, among others. The objective of these rehabilitation machines is to support and improve the effectiveness of physiotherapists to facilitate and increase the speed of patients’ recovery.
Rehabilitation machines are operated automatically and designed as tools for rehabilitation therapists to recover the range of motion, strengthen the affected part, decrease the repetitive work of physical therapists, provide patient assistance, increase the number of therapy services and offer a greater diversity of personalized therapies with precise, smooth and safe movements.
This Special Issue aims to attract researchers to present recent advances and technologies, as well as review articles, in the area of rehabilitation robotics concerning analysis, synthesis, design, and control aspects.
