Arami A, Tagliamonte NL, Tamburella F, Huang H-Y, Molinari M, Burdet Eet al., 2017, A simple tool to measure spasticity in spinal cord injury subjects., Pages: 1590-1596

This work presents a wearable device and the algorithms for quantitative modelling of joint spasticity and its application in a pilot group of subjects with different levels of spinal cord injury. The device comprises light-weight instrumented handles to measure the interaction force between the subject and the physical therapist performing the tests, EMG sensors and inertial measurement units to measure muscle activity and joint kinematics. Experimental tests included the passive movement of different body segments, where the spasticity was expected, at different velocities. Tonic stretch reflex thresholds and their velocity modulation factor are computed, as a quantitative index of spasticity, by using the kinematics data at the onset of spasm detected through thresholding the EMG data. This technique was applied to two spinal cord injury subjects. The proposed method allowed the analysis of spasticity at muscle and joint levels. The obtained results are in line with the expert diagnosis and qualitative spasticity characterisation on each individual.

We present a haptic interface to help deafblind people to practice horseback riding as a recreational and therapeutic activity. Horseback riding is a form of therapy which can improve self-esteem and sensation of independence. It has been shown to benefit people with various medical conditions-including autism. However, in the case of deafblind riders, an interpreter must stand by at all times to communicate with the rider by touch. We developed a simple interface that enables deafblind people to enjoy horseback riding while the instructor is remotely providing cues, which improves their independence. Experiments demonstrated that an autistic deafblind individual exhibits similar responses to navigational cues as an unimpaired rider. Motivation is an important factor in therapy, and is frequently determinant of its outcome; therefore, the user attitude toward the therapy methods is key. The answers to questionnaires filled by the rider, family, and the instructor show that our technique gives the rider a greater sense of independence and more joy compared to standard riding where the instructor is walking along with the horse.

Ong HT, Tong LZ, Tan JX, Lin J, Burdet E, Teo CL, Ge SSet al., 2016, Pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function using novel robotic device reachMAN2, Pages: 1-7

Studies of robotic therapy for adults with physical disabilities due to stroke have been an active field of research for the last two decades and the results suggest that stroke patients can benefit from this kind of therapy. Due to the success of robot-assisted rehabilitation in adults, it is reasonable to believe that this approach may be well suited to the needs of children with physical disabilities. This paper presents the results of a preliminary study of three children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, using the reachMAN2, a novel robotic device for the pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function. The device has two degrees-of-freedom to train pinching, forearm supination/pronation and wrist flexion/ extension movements. An interactive computer game was developed to increase subjects' participation and engagement during the robotic rehabilitation. Pinching, with the index finger and thumb, forearm supination/pronation as well as wrist flexion/extension were trained two or three times a week for 15 minutes each. There was a total of 10 training sessions in four weeks. The results showed significant improvement in movement precision, range of motion as well as motor skill measurements using the Bruininks- Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT-2).
