Robot-Therapy for Finger Extension Description

Project Description

Principal Investigator

Derek Kamper, PhD

Co-Principal Investigator

Robert Kenyon

Finger extension is often greatly impaired following stroke. The goal of this project is to develop and test two different devices intended to facilitate rehabilitation of finger extension in individuals with chronic hemiplegia. Both devices incorporate an augmented reality (AR) environment, which serves to provide virtual targets used in training. The targets are customized to the ability and anthropometry of each subject.
