Robotic Rehabilitation and Spinal Cord Injury: a Narrative Review.
A review on advances in robot-guided rehabilitation after SCI for the upper and lower extremities, as well as potential adjuncts to robotics. Authors recognize that the robotic devices in rehabilitation are used with 2 goals: to enhance recovery through repetitive, functional movement and increased neural plasticity and to act as a mobility aid beyond orthoses and wheelchairs. The authors organize the evidence of lower extremity exoskeleton research by the impact on spasticity, pain, cardiovascular system, change in metabolism, bowel function, quality of life, bone health, and ambulation.
