  • Human-robot cooperative movement training: learning a novel sensory motor transformation during walking with robotic assistance-as-needed 

    Emken, Jeremy L.; Benítez Iglesias, Raúl; Reinkensmeyer, David J. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2007-03-31)
    Open Access
    Background A prevailing paradigm of physical rehabilitation following neurologic injury is to "assist-as-needed" in completing desired movements. Several research groups are attempting to automate this principle with ...
  • Motor adaptation as a greedy optimization of error and effort

    thought of as a process in which the nervous system learns to anticipate the environmental forces to eliminate kinematic error. Here we show that motor adaptation can more generally be modeled as a process in which the ...
  • Single degree-of-freedom exoskeleton mechanism design for finger rehabilitation 

    Wolbrecht, Eric T.; Reinkensmeyer, David J.; Pérez Gracia, Alba (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents the kinematic design of a single degree-of-freedom exoskeleton mechanism: a planar eight-bar mechanism for finger curling. The mechanism is part of a fingerthumb robotic device for hand therapy that ...
