Abstract

Nine children with cerebral palsy and nine adults with stroke were trained using 5 different upper extremity simulations using the NJIT-RAVR system for approximately nine to twelve hours over a three week period. Both groups made improvements in clinical measurements of upper extremity function and reaching kinematics. Patterns and magnitudes of improvement differ between the two groups. Responses to training required adjustment of the robotic system to accommodate the rehabilitation needs of children with cerebral palsy.
