Virtual Reality and Robot-Based Rehabilitation for Post-Stroke Recovery

By Associated Engineering Press

Stroke survivors often lose some of their motor functions, and recovery can be a long and expensive process. By integrating virtual reality, robot, and motion capture technology, a low-cost solution can be developed that is more effective and accessible than current rehabilitation methods. Towards this aim, Dr Fei Hu and his team at the University of Alabama have made great strides in integrating technology from both the engineering and medical industries.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
