Abstract

The growing care gap in rehabilitation calls for ways to help patients perform their exercises in a safe environment, while receiving feedback on their progress. Socially assistive robots have been suggested as potential agents in helping patients in their rehabilitation regimen. Here, we present a set of guidelines that we developed, based on our experience with running a 2-year in-clinic study with 20 stroke patients who used a platform we developed for post-stroke training over a 5-7-week period; 10 of those trained with a socially assistive robot, and 10 with a computer-based system. The guidelines we provide here are aimed to assist researchers who wish to implement a long-term technological intervention program with patients in the wild.
