3. Jumpei Arata, Robot-Assisted Assessment and Therapy of Hand Function, The 14th edition of the IEEE/RAS-EMBS International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR 2015), 2015.08, There is a need and potential for complementing and extending conventional rehabilitation with robotic therapy and long-term assistance of hand function. While there have been numerous developments and clinical studies with robot-assisted gait and arm rehabilitation systems over the past two decades, few are those focusing on hand and finger function. This is likely due to the high complexity, small size and anthropometric variability of the hand. Devices to train and assist hand function should address both motor and sensory components, and allow for online assessments of impairment to adjust therapy intensity and the level of assistance to the individual patient. Furthermore, due to the slow recovery of hand function, portable and wearable solutions for assistance and therapy in the home environment must be explored. This workshop therefore aims to:
•Review neurophysiological mechanisms of hand sensorimotor control and their implications for recovery.
•Discuss challenges for robot-assisted therapy and assessment of hand function in the clinic and in the home environment.
•Provide an overview of state-of-the-art (robotic) devices for assessment, therapy and long-term assistance of hand and finger function, and discuss future directions.
•Present evidence from recent clinical trials.
•Bring together a group of experts from the different fields of neurorehabilitation
