About this event

Cerebral palsy is the commonest form of childhood disability effecting 1 in 400 children,
85% of these children have upper limb functional impairment. Robotic technology for home and
school based rehabilitation of such impairment has been investigated as a motivating adjunct to
conventional therapy.
Andy Weightman has collaboratively developed and deployed rehabilitation
robots utilising National Instruments hardware and software. In this talk Andy will discuss some of
the practical issues with developing such technology, and present the LabVIEW software architecture that forms the basis of the robots.
