ROBOT AND COMPUTER-ASSISTED THERAPY FOR UPPER LIMB REHABILITATION
Every day, therapists face the challenge of identifying their patients’ problems and helping them to achieve permanent therapeutic goals that are meaningful to the patients and as quickly as possible; especially in a time limited therapy session that often makes it difficult for therapists to offer their patients a consistently intensive and motivating therapy.
David's seminar will help to develop solutions for all phases of upper limb rehabilitation.

On the 25th April 2017 the National Institute for Health Research published a report stating repetitive task training can help recovery after stroke.
Following a stroke, people who received repetitive task training showed greater improvements in performing functional tasks, such as picking up a cup, standing up and walking. These improvements were sustained for up to six months.
Disability following stroke is common, affecting around half of all stroke survivors. This NIHR-funded review of over thirty trials found that repetitive task training provided small gains in arm and leg function, balance and walking distance (about 35 metres).
We do not yet know the optimum number of sessions, or the ideal duration or intensity. However, it is a versatile and relatively easy intervention which can be delivered by physiotherapists/occupational therapists in groups, individually, in hospital, in the community or at home. Depending on the nature of the exercise, there is also potential for people to continue to practice on their own or with carer support.
This review shows that it can help people to improve functionality and mobility .
