Grant to Fund Stroke Robotic-Recovery Study

MAE professor receives a five-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to determine the efficacy of robot assistance in restoring these fine motor skills

More than half of all stroke patients suffer chronic motor impairment, with a large percentage experiencing difficulty in using their hand and arm.  David Reinkensmeyer, Ph.D., mechanical and aerospace engineering professor, is collaborating with neurology professor Steve Cramer, electrical engineering professor Mark Bachman and former UCI doctoral student Eric Wolbrecht, who is now an assistant professor at University of Idaho to determine the efficacy of robot assistance in restoring these fine motor skills.
