Robot ARAMIS (Automatic Recovery Arm Motility Integrated System) is intended to provide the therapist with novel and time/cost-efficient approaches to the rehabilitation of the paretic upper limb after stroke. The system has been designed and implemented based on common experience in rehabilitation and will provide a robot–patient interaction compensating for some intrinsic limitations of traditional treatments. Rationale, technical characteristics and application are described in detail here.
