Robot Therapy

Many people have wondered whether robots will be able to help people’s health, and this has quickly become a reality: motorized wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and more are ideal examples of this. But never before have robots actually helped the biological aspect of human health.

Recently, a robot was developed that helped patients recovering from stroke to regain their arm movement. This is a terrible result of stroke, but with the help of Myomo, the recovery is much simpler.

Myomo is a robotic guide arm that helps paralyzed limbs move with relative ease. With pre-programmed motions, the robotic arm helps patients stretch during regular intervals, which slowly help regain the movement of the affected arm. In addition, its controlled movements make stretching safer and easier than conventional repetitive stretching methods, which occasionally lead to detrimental effects. This is the beginning of robotic therapy, which shows much promise for the successful treatments into the future.
