Thanks to Anne Trafton from the MIT News Office for writing Robotic therapy holds promise for cerebral palsy, highlighting the great work by MIT's Hermano Igo Krebs, Neville Hogan, and colleagues in helping children with cerebral palsy and other brain injuries develop their motor skills and thrive with increasing independence. As my colleague, Media Lab Director Frank Moss, notes, there's perhaps no higher imperative than investing in new systems and solutions for those traditionally viewed as Disabled, Disadvantaged, and Dismissed. See here the kids going robo!
