RÉSUMÉ

Robots are being developed for a broad array of applications within rehabilitation, including use as exercise aids, activity of daily life (ADL) aids, mobility aids, and remote presence/telerehabilitation devices. Of these potential applications, robotic exercise devices have been best studied in clinical research and appear safe and beneficial. Robot capabilities continue to expand as technological development continues. Robots are expected to become an integral part of rehabilitation in coming years, and an important adjunct to traditional rehabilitation approaches.
