Writing in Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 03/19/2013 Dr. Bolliger from Balgrist University Hospital Forchstrasse 340, 8008 Zurich discusses the importance of active participation of patients during robotic-assisted rehabilitation. The group looked at spinal cord injury patients (SCI).
