Increasing motivation in robot-aided arm rehabilitation with competitive and cooperative gameplay

  • Authors: Novak, Domen; Nagle, Aniket; Keller, Urs; Riener, Robert

Several strategies have been proposed to improve patient motivation and exercise intensity during robot-aided stroke rehabilitation. One relatively unexplored possibility is two-player gameplay, allowing subjects to compete or cooperate with each other to achieve a common goal. In order to explore the potential of such games, we designed a two-player game played using two ARMin arm rehabilitation robots.
