Technology prescription for neuro recovery

Session outline

Motor recovery is a major objective of stroke rehabilitation program, yet stroke recovery remains a challenge for many clinicians to assess and treat.  The great deal of variability in the presentation among stroke survivors is a major factor contributing to the complexity and difficulty of assessment and selection of appropriate treatment. In this program, we will share the experience of implementing advanced technologies to facilitate stroke recovery in clinical practice including Upper and Lower Limb rehabilitation robotics and wearable sensors. In particular, based on   our experience from well-known institutions, we will facilitate the discussion how to improve the outcome and patient experiences using these technologies in acute stroke patients in inpatient settings and chronic stroke patients in outpatient settings. We will demonstrate the clinical reasoning process and strategies to select appropriate interventions and tools to facilitate post-stroke recovery. We will have interactive discussion with audience regarding the feasibility and effectiveness of building an innovative program in daily clinical practice and strategies to sustain the program.

  1. Appropriately assess post-stroke pathological abnormalities.
  2. Develop an innovative program to improve the quality of care
  3. Understand emerging trends in rehab robotics
  4. Address the strategies gear to the difference in the rehabilitation culture
