In a paper recently published in the journal Scientific Reports, researchers from the US introduced a novel cable-driven robotic platform that enables six-degrees-of-freedom (DoF) natural head-neck movements. Their device could be utilized for various applications such as rehabilitation, sensory integration, and pain relief.

Human study task. Left: Labeled task GUI. The current time to target and average time to target is shown to the participant. The marker color changes from red to green as it approaches the target. The target number counts up to 30 to indicate how far along the participant is in the trial. The flexion-extension axis is flipped so that the GUI represents a top-down view of the head as the participants found that more intuitive. Center: Diagram of experiment setup including (from left to right) monitor, joystick, and chair-mounted robot. Right: Photograph of user [...]
