In the last decade, rehabilitation technology has been developed, investigated, and entered specialized clinical settings. In this chapter, we first discuss the potential of rehabilitation technology to support the achievement of key factors in motor recovery, such as delivering massed practice with good movement quality but also question task-specificity and cognitive motor control mechanisms. Second, we discuss available technology-supported rehabilitation methods for improving gait, balance and fitness, and upper limb function. Finally, we discuss considerations in relation to the professional workforce in order to deliver optimal rehabilitation.

Abstract

In the last decade, rehabilitation technology has been developed, investigated, and entered specialized clinical settings. In this chapter, we first discuss the potential of rehabilitation technology to support the achievement of key factors in motor recovery, such as delivering massed practice with good movement quality but also question task-specificity and cognitive motor control mechanisms. Second, we discuss available technology-supported rehabilitation methods for improving gait, balance and fitness, and upper limb function. Finally, we discuss considerations in relation to the professional workforce in order to deliver optimal rehabilitation.
