Robotic Ankle Rehabilitation Helps Post Stroke Recovery

A Feinstein Institute study published by Medical Research scientist Bruce T. Volpe, MD and Johanna L. Change finds that stroke patients with high function walking speed had the potential to return to normal walking speed with improved balance following isolated ankle training with a robotic therapy device. The expectation is that a better understanding of severity-dependent recovery profiles after stroke will help medical professionals determine the best candidates for robotic rehabilitation.
