Rehabilitation Robotics has been defined as the combination of industrial robotics and medical rehabilitation, thus encompassing many areas, including mechanical and electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, artificial intelligence and sensor and actuator technology. Medical rehabilitation often refers to the process by which human function, be it physical or cognitive, is restored at least partially to their “normal” condition.
