A randomized controlled trial showed that combining Armeo®Power and Amadeo® training in patients with spinal cord injury is effective for proximal strengthening and training of simple prehensive motion, whereas conventional occupational therapy is effective for the distal strengthening and distal fine motor function. Training by ArmeoPower was very effective in the strengthening of proximal muscles, while Amadeo showed some limitations in the training of distal muscles.
