The History of Stroke and Spinal Cord Rehabilitation
The specialized field of stroke patient and spinal cord injury rehabilitation has often been quite labor intensive for therapists. Therapists not only load the patients into the equipment, but they are also the ones moving the patients legs. This limits the length of each session to 5-15 minutes because the therapists need to rest periodically.

Manual labor also affects the consistency of results. Each therapist operates differently, making it impossible to standardize movement. These variables make tracking specific data difficult, which limits progress tracking.
