Investigation of robotic-assisted tilt-table therapy for early-stage spinal cord injury rehabilitation

Colm T. D. Craven, MEngSc, et al.

This study investigates the use of a robotic-assisted tilt-table to determine whether it may be of benefit to people during the early stages of spinal cord injury rehabilitation. This tilt-table may be used for exercise in order to help maintain fitness and to reduce the likelihood of developing cardiovascular health complications later in life. We found that there may be such a fitness benefit if this device is used regularly as part of a training program. It may be of most benefit if the person can participate and actively step with the robotic assistance.
