How effective is electromechanical and robot-assisted arm training for improving activities of daily living after stroke?
These results must be interpreted with caution because there were variations between the trials in the duration, amount of training and type of treatment, and in patient characteristics.
The role of electromechanical and robot-assisted training for improving arm function after stroke is unclear. More than two-thirds of all patients after stroke have difficulties with reduced arm function. Electromechanical and robot-assisted arm training uses specialised machines to assist rehabilitation in practice.
