Tuesday, January 16, 2018 -- by Kazuya Saita, Takashi Morishita, Hisatomi Arima, Koichi Hyakutake, Toshiyasu Ogata, Kenji Yagi, Etsuji Shiota, Tooru Inoue Introduction Robot-assisted rehabilitation has been increasingly drawing attention in the field of neurorehabilitation. The hybrid assistive limb (HAL) is an exoskeleton robot developed based on the “interactive biofeedback” theory, and several studies have shown its efficacy for patients with stroke. We aimed to investigate the mechanisms of the facilitative effect of neurorehabilitation using a single-joint HAL (HAL-SJ) and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). Materials and methods Subacute stroke patients admitted to our hospital were assessed in this study for HAL eligibility. We evaluated motor-related cortical activity using an fNIRS system at baseline and immediately after HAL-SJ treatment on the same day. Cortical activity
