Abstract

Development of novel engineering solutions that incorporate robotic systems offers huge potential, as both assistive devices and therapeutic aids, for patients with reduced motor and/or cognitive abilities. Indeed, such technologies are capable of outperforming existing therapeutic systems for improving patients’ achievable functional recovery. As a result, advanced engineering solutions for rehabilitation robotics have received a considerable amount of interest in recent years, from both the academic community and the industrial sector. Emphasis is typically focused on the improvement of sensor systems, control engineering, computer vision, robotic mechanics, human-machine interfaces, modelling and simulation, in-built intelligence, and informatics, to meet the broad range of challenges posed during patient rehabilitation. This special issue is aimed at exhibiting the latest research achievements, findings, and ideas in the field of rehabilitation robotics and systems. Researchers were invited to contribute with their original research articles, as well as review articles, that summarize the most recent developments in the field of rehabilitation robotics and systems.
