A team from The Santa Lucia Foundation in Rome, headed by Dr. Giovanni Morone, recently completed a trial study to see if those who have a stroke can benefit from robot-assisted therapy. The study took two years and consisted of 48 nonambulant patients who became involved after 20 days from the time of the strokes. They found that using the robotic assistance helped those that had high motor impairment. If you would like to study their findings, it was published in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association and can be found via the link.
