Rehabilitation Robotics

Description

Rehabilitation robotics has produced exciting new ideas and novel human assistive devices in the growing field of biomedical robotics. The successful research and development of such rehabilitation robotics require thorough understanding of not only mechanical, electrical, and software components, but also related physiology, biology, neuroscience, and brain science. The science and technology of the rehabilitation robotics will be progressed through the collaboration between robotic researchers, medical doctors, and patients. This special issue focuses on the new advances in modeling, design, analysis, implementation, and therapeutic testing of the human assistive rehabilitation robotics. Moreover, several projects on rehabilitation robotics will be introduced. Multidisciplinary papers are encouraged to be submitted. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Assistive robotics
  • Therapeutic robotics
  • Mechatronics in prosthetics
  • Functional rehabilitation (handwriting, grasping, walking, etc.)
  • Artificial human exoskeletons
  • User interfaces and brain control
  • Evaluation and clinical experiments
  • Biorobotics
  • Human-robot interaction
  • Pathological movement models

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jr/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
