Sound and rehabilitation robotics for pediatric cerebral palsy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Robots for pediatric rehabilitation are expected to have sensory-motor components and mixed media elements to enhance rehabilitation outcomes and make robotic therapy amenable to children. We have investigated the effect of sound in voluntary movement trajectory formation of children with cerebral palsy. The results indicate that including a musical melody during the execution of movement may be beneficial in robotic applications designed for the treatment of children with spastic cerebral palsy.
