BACKGROUND: Robot-assisted Arm Therapy (RAT) has been increasingly applied in the last years for promoting functional recovery in patients with disabilities related to neurological health conditions. Evidence of a knowledge-to-action gap for applying robot-assisted technologies in the rehabilitation of patients with neurological health conditions and the difficulty to apply and tailor the knowledge to the local contexts solicited the need for a national consensus conference on these interventions.
AIM: This paper aims to explain the methodology used by the working group dedicated to synthesize evidence on the effectiveness of RAT in neurological health conditions in the context of the CICERONE Italian Consensus Conference.
DESIGN: The methodological approach of the working group.
SETTING: All rehabilitation settings.
POPULATION: Patients with disability following a neurological health condition.
METHODS: Following the indications proposed by the Methodological Manual published by the Italian National Institute of Health, a Promoting Committee and a Technical Scientific Committee have been set up. Six working groups (WGs) have been composed to collect evidence on different questions, among which WG2.2 was focused on the effectiveness of RAT in neurological health conditions.
RESULTS: WG2.2 started its work defining the specific research questions. It was decided to adopt the ICF as the reference framework for the reporting of all outcomes. Literature search, data extraction and qualitative assessment, evidence analysis and synthesis have been performed.
CONCLUSIONS: This paper summarizes the methodological approaches used by the WG2.2 of the CICERONE Italian Consensus Conference to define the effectiveness of RAT in the management of patients with neurological health conditions.
CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: WG2.2 synthesis might help clinicians, researchers, and all rehabilitation stakeholders to address the use of RAT in the Individualized Rehabilitation Plan, to guide the allocation of resources and define clinical protocols and indications for the management of patients with different neurological health conditions.
