Hanging Robot Speeds Rehabilitation

Researchers have created a smart hanging robot that could help speed patient rehabilitation.

The robotic system is made up of suspended harness that can lift the patient up and forward via a series of motors. A deep learning algorithm allows the amount of assistive force to change based on the patient’s physical ability, providing precisely the assistance needed for rehabilitation.
