Robot physiotherapy. Robotic arm being used in upper limb physiotherapy. The patient is holding the end of a robotic arm and using it as a joystick to move a yellow dot through a maze. The maze and robotic arm are designed to provide a set of movements, and resistance to those movements, that will rehabilitate the patient's injury. A set of physiotherapy exercises is usually designed to exercise and use a set of muscles that have wasted away through disease or inactivity (such as after injury or surgery).
