Sažetak

Aim: Neurorehabilitation of patients after stroke is a major challenge, and robotic systems as an upgrade to conventional rehabilitation have been the subject of numerous studies. Thus, a research was conducted at the Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine of the University Hospital Center Rijeka in which an Armeo Spring® (Hocoma, Switzerland) robotic device was used in order to evaluate the effectiveness of its application. Subjects and methods: The study included 40 patients after stroke with consequent hemiparesis and were involved in subacute phase neurorehabilitation, averaging 47.31 (± SD = 24.74) days after stroke. Patients were divided into two groups of 20 patients and both groups performed exercises twice a day. The examined group of patients performed conventional physiotherapy procedures according to the Bobath concept with additional robotic therapy on the Armeo Spring® device (Hocoma, Switzerland) and twenty patients of the control group performed conventional physiotherapy according to the Bobath concept twice a day. Performance assessment was measured by the Functional Independent Measurement (FIM) and the Motor Assessment Scale (MAS) and the assessment was performed before and after neurorehabilitation. Results: Monitoring three variables, the overall FIM test, the overall MAS test (MAS U) and the MAS test for upper extremity function (Motor Assessment Scale for upper extremity function; MAS UE) showed a statistically significant difference (p <0.05) between the examined and control groups. Conclusion: The research has shown that Armeo Spring®-assisted movements improve the outcome of rehabilitation and complement conventional therapy. It is especially encouraging that we achieved our results in patients in the subacute phase of rehabilitation after stroke.
