Cerebellar symptoms are extremely disabling and are common in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients.

In this feasibility study, we developed and tested a robot therapy protocol, aimed at the rehabilitation of incoordination in MS subjects.

Methods: Eight subjects with clinically defined MS performed planar reaching movements while grasping the handle of a robotic manipulandum, which generated forces that either reduced (error-reducing, ER) or enhanced (error-enhancing, EE) the curvature of their movements, assessed at the beginning of each session....Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... ageid/1430
