Robot-assisted rehabilitation therapy and sensory motor restoration: Toward a computational approach

Dr. David Reinkensmeyer is Professor in the Departments of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Anatomy and Neurobiology, Biomedical Engineering, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of California Irvine. His research interests are in neuromuscular control, motor learning, robotics, and rehabilitation. A major goal of his research is to develop physically interacting, robotic and mechatronic devices to help the nervous system recover the ability to control movement of the arm, hand, and leg after neurologic injuries such as stroke and spinal cord injury. He is also investigating the computational mechanisms of human motor learning in order to provide a rational basis for designing movement training devices. His laboratory has helped develop a variety of robotic devices for manipulating and measuring movement in humans and rodents, including the T-WREX arm training system, now in clinical use worldwide as the Hocoma ArmeoSpring.
