Upper-limb robot-assisted therapy in rehabilitation of acute stroke patients: Focused review and results of new randomized controlled trial

Stefano Masiero, MD, et al.

Rehabilitation is fundamental in reducing residual motor problems of patients with stroke, both during hospitalization (known as the "acute/subacute phase") and after discharge (known as the "chronic phase"). In the last 2 decades, the use of robotics in poststroke rehabilitation has been investigated intensely and some positive clinical results have been found. We present the most recent results of a study using robotic therapy in the acute phase poststroke, when patients are likely to improve in the most relevant motor abilities.
