Technological Developments in neurorehabilitation

Scientists are using technology with neurorehabilitation to provide cutting edge improvements to therapies for patients with nervous system issues. The neurorehabilitation has undergone drastic changes over the last two decades due to the incorporation of computer and robotic electronic devices, designed to produce positive changes in cortical excitability of the cerebral hemisphere damaged and so to improve neuroplasticity. In particular, the use of robotics in neurorehabilitation is becoming more and more common. These devices and simulations, along with other robotic technology, offer patients who have just had strokes, other brain or spinal cord injuries the option of training and physical therapy much sooner than might otherwise be possible, thus shortening the recovery period.

This session includes Instrumentation in Rehabilitation, Neurophysiologic and Neuroimaging techniques, Telerehabilitation, Technical developments for deep brain stimulation, Research Methodologies and Multidimensional strategies and endpoints in clinical trials

 

The aim of Neurorehabilitation technologies is to take advantage of the functional neuromuscular structures preserved, and they compensate or re-learn the functions that previously made the damaged areas. Differently from other fields of engineering, studies about the effectiveness of these technologies often occur after their development and their insertion in the rehabilitation settings.
