The authors' goal is to apply robotics and automation technology to assist, enhance, quantify, and document neurorehabilitation. This paper reviews a clinical trial involving 20 stroke patients with a prototype robot-aided rehabilitation facility developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, (MIT) and tested at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, White Plains, NY. It also presents the authors' approach to analyze kinematic data collected in the robot-aided assessment procedure. In particular, they present evidence (1) that robot-aided therapy does not have adverse effects, (2) that patients tolerate the procedure, and (3) that peripheral manipulation of the impaired limb may influence brain recovery. These results are based on standard clinical assessment procedures. The authors also present one approach using kinematic data in a robot-aided assessment procedure
