Abstract The presence of robotic devices in rehabilitation centers is now becoming commonplace across the world, challenging heath care professionals to rethink treatment strategies for motor impairment in hemiparetic stroke patients. In this article, we will discuss some of the motivations for using these devices, review clinical outcomes following robotic-assisted training in both the upper and lower extremities, and detail how these devices can provide quantitative evaluations of function. We will also address the clinical issues that need to be considered when using robotic devices to treat stroke patients, and finally a vision of where this field is heading will be discussed.
