A New York hospital is pioneering the use of robotic devices in stroke rehabilitation as part of ongoing clinical research trials.
The New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center is the first hospital in the US to use the Amadeo hand rehab device, and the first in New York to offer the new Tibion bionic leg.
The Amadeo device helps stroke survivors regain hand movement by mimicking a grasping motion, gradually increasing motor control and strength.
For patients with a stroke-weakened leg, the Tibion thigh-to-ankle bionic leg gives them the assistance and resistance required for them to use it in concert with their good leg during therapy sessions.
The hospital is currently recruiting people who have been recovering from a stroke for six months or longer and have difficulties in hand or leg function for a clinical research trial of the devices.
