This work presents the preliminary results of a

randomized controlled trial aimed at evaluating the efficacy of

a novel hybrid robotic system for arm rehabilitation after

stroke. The system was developed within the European project

RETRAINER and consists of a passive exoskeleton for weight

relief combined with an arm EMG-triggered neuroprosthesis.

Up to now, 39 patients completed the 9-week intervention:

patients in the experimental group achieved a significantly

better effect in the motoric outcome measures with respect to

control subjects receiving only conventional therapy. These

promising results need to be confirmed on a larger sample.
