Abstract

In order to identify the clinical requirements for a novel upper-limb robotic device for sensorimotor neurorehabilitation, a survey with 33 participants (including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nurses and physicians) was conducted. The results show that grasping, eating and personal hygiene are amongst the most important activities of daily living to be exercised. Hand/finger extension were reported as crucial movements. In serious games for neurorehabilitation, adjustable quantity of virtual objects as well as adjustable game difficulty are highly demanded features. The majority of the participants would like to spend less than 10 min for the setup of a robotic device.
