Abstract: Physical therapy is used to improve a patient's physical functions through physical examination, diagnosis, prognosis, patient education, and health promotion. It is practiced by physical therapists, usually at a clinic or at the patient's suitable place. Even though physiotherapists are efficient and effective, there are some difficulties faced by patients. Robotic technology designed to assist physiotherapy can potentially increase the efficiency of and accessibility to therapy. It helps to assist therapists to provide consistent training for extended periods of time, and collecting data to assess progress. Robotic devices also offer flexibility in their operation, as feedback of the user’s performance based on the data from the sensors can be used to provide appropriate movements and forces during training. It enables consistent training of the prescribed intensity for extended periods of time. It has the potential to completely change the way physiotherapists deliver treatment to patients in the future.
