Book Description :

Stroke is the number one cause of movement disability in the world. In recent years, robotic assistance has empowered people with stroke to complete intensive movement therapy in motivating environments, thus matching or bettering the motor recovery attainable with traditional therapy. Yet, motor deficits remain stubbornly persistent, especially for those with severe impairments.Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) are a technology that can facilitate direct communication between the brain and an external device. BCIs have already been used to control robotic prostheses to replace lost function. The premise of this dissertation is that, with the right tools and knowledge, BCIs could also help restore function to those with movement disability after a neurologic injury. In this dissertation, I investigate use of a BCI to help individuals with a stroke shape their brain activity while moving the fingers with assistance from a robotic orthosis, with the goal of guiding activity-dependent plasticity in the brain to drive motor recovery. The working hypothesis is that appropriately shaping brain activity will improve finger movement ability and provide a therapeutic benefit after stroke.First, I present a computational model of motor learning that uses a neural network to simulate the motor cortex after a stroke and during subsequent finger force recovery. These simulations suggested that BCI-based interventions should target perilesional motor areas, thus restoring normative network recruitment during finger movement, and that targeted training should make up about 20% of total limb use to maximize recovery.In a study of unimpaired people completing a robot-assisted movement task, I identified a key confound of BCI-contingent robot-assisted therapy, showing that robot assistance can affect the BCI even when the participant is passive, which may hinder motor learning. I also present a potential design approach for both the robot and the BCI to avoid this confound.I then explore BCI methodological considerations in two experiments with impaired and unimpaired people moving in a robot-assisted environment. Key results included that bipolar EEG recordings and finger extension movements led to the best models correlating brain state with ensuing movement and are thus most conducive to BCI-based training.The culmination of this work is the design of a BCI-robot rehabilitation paradigm, which I tested in a study with eight people with severe impairment after a chronic stroke. Participants participated in four weeks of a therapy protocol that determined the effect of BCI-based sensorimotor rhythm control on finger extension performance. Here, we found that BCI training can improve subsequent movement performance -- a result never before found for individuals with a stroke. The training also produced therapeutic benefits, indicating its viability as a future rehabilitation intervention. Finally, looking to the future of BCI-robot therapy, I present low-cost alternatives for BCI signal acquisition and wearable robotic devices.

Book Description :

Neurological Rehabilitation is the latest volume in the definitive Handbook of Clinical Neurology series. It is the first time that this increasing important subject has been included in the series and this reflects the growing interest and quality of scientific data on topics around neural recovery and the practical applications of new research. The volume will appeal to clinicians from both neurological and rehabilitation backgrounds and contains topics of interest to all members of the multidisciplinary clinical team as well as the neuroscience community. The volume is divided into five key sections. The first is a summary of current research on neural repair, recovery and plasticity. The authors have kept the topics readable for a non-scientific audience and focused on the aspects of basic neuroscience that should be most relevant to clinical practice. The next section covers the basic principles of neurorehabilitation, including excellent chapters on learning and skill acquisition, outcome measurement and functional neuroimaging. The key clinical section comes next and includes updates and reviews on the management of the main neurological disabling physical problems, such as spasticity, pain, sexual functioning and dysphagia. Cognitive, emotional and behavioural problems are just as important and are covered in the next section, with excellent chapters, for example, on memory and management of executive dysfunction. The final part draws the sections on symptom management together by discussing the individual diseases that are most commonly seen in neurorehabilitation and providing an overview of the management of the disability associated with those disorders. The volume is a definitive review of current neurorehabilitation practice and will be valuable to a wide range of clinicians and scientists working in this rapidly developing field. *A volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series, which has an unparalleled reputation as the world's most comprehensive source of information in neurology. *International list of contributors including the leading workers in the field. *Describes the advances which have occurred in clinical neurology and the neurosciences, their impact on the understanding of neurological disorders and on patient care.

Book Description :

This chapter focuses on rehabilitation robotics which can be used to augment the clinician's toolbox in order to deliver meaningful restorative therapy for an aging population, as well as on advances in orthotics to augment an individual's functional abilities beyond neurorestoration potential. The interest in rehabilitation robotics and orthotics is increasing steadily with marked growth in the last 10 years. This growth is understandable in view of the increased demand for caregivers and rehabilitation services escalating apace with the graying of the population. We provide an overview on improving function in people with a weak limb due to a neurological disorder who cannot properly control it to interact with the environment (orthotics); we then focus on tools to assist the clinician in promoting rehabilitation of an individual so that s/he can interact with the environment unassisted (rehabilitation robotics). We present a few clinical results occurring immediately poststroke as well as during the chronic phase that demonstrate superior gains for the upper extremity when employing rehabilitation robotics instead of usual care. These include the landmark VA-ROBOTICS multisite, randomized clinical study which demonstrates clinical gains for chronic stroke that go beyond usual care at no additional cost.
