Abstract

This paper describes a hands-off therapist robot that monitors, assists, encourages, and socially interacts with post-stroke users in the process of rehabilitation exercises. We developed a behavior adaptation system that takes advantage of the users introversion-extroversion personality trait and the number of exercises performed in order to adjust its social interaction parameters (e.g., interaction distances/proxemics, speed, and vocal content) toward a customized post-stroke rehabilitation therapy. The experimental results demonstrate the robot's autonomous behavior adaptation to the user's personality and the resulting user improvements of the exercise task performance.
