Michael Lobatz, MD, Scripps neurologist and medical director of rehabilitation, was on KUSI to discuss new treatment options for stroke rehabilitation. In his interview Dr. Lobatz shared with the news team information about the robotics program at the Scripps Rehabilitation Center.
In his interview Dr. Lobatz discussed the advantage of neuroplasticity, which is a way for your brain to reorganize and relearn after trauma or stroke. Robotics can assist with developing new pathways by replicating movements in a very precise manner and continuously adapting to patients as their abilities progress.
The original KUSI video, titled "Health Report: Stroke Rehabilitation," is not available at this time.
