Recent studies show that hand dexterity and strength recover mostly within the first three months after stroke, and that these two critical components of hand function are supported by separate biological systems. However, in most stroke patients, dexterous hand function does not fully recover with the standard rehabilitation therapy. These...
Surgery is a prototype for contexts in which human learning can be significantly transformed with technology. Besides transforming patient care, technological advances are now beginning to play an increasingly central role in graduate surgical education. Several factors are driving this transformation, including...
Substantial progress has been made in the control of myoelectrically driven upper-limb prosthetics, which has improved the quality of life for many amputees. However, one of the biggest complaints that amputees still have about these commercially available prosthetics is the lack of tactile feedback. Tactile feedback is crucial not only...
