The demand for physical therapists will develop by 25 percent from 2016 to 2026, predicted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
A batch of engineering students from the University of Texas at Austin works towards to slack up some of that need with two modern recovery robots. One robot, named as Harmony, is complete upper body exoskeleton; require wrapping around the patient’s arms and shoulders. It is intended to move patients by applying some set of an exercise, much like a physical therapist prefers.

The executive of the ReNeu Robotics Lab, which made the bots, Ashish Deshpande, said that an apply autonomy framework can assume an indispensable part by giving more treatment according to the information gathered on individuals in an absolute approach to give the alleviation to the stroke patients.
Another exoskeleton, made by the lab, named as Maestro, expected to help the patients hand and wrist capacities. To bring out the patients through the particular movements, both the robots can be coded.
Mr. Deshpande envisions that they have an apply autonomy framework inside the treatment office, the robot would program by the specialist, according to the state of the specific patient, to influence the robot to prepared to draw in with the individual for drawn-out stretches of time.
Till now Maestro and Harmony are models, it assumes that they will be in trials by 2018. The contemplation is that the exoskeletons could over the long haul be sold under the rigging spending design of generous recuperating focuses.
