Shoulder joint mobilization robot designed, built in Iran

Tehran (IP) - The first shoulder joint mobilization robot was designed and built by an Iranian physiotherapist and medical robotics specialist.

Iran PressIran News: The shoulder joint mobilization robot is one of the physiotherapy equipment that rehabilitates and treats intra-articular disorder of the shoulder (hypomobility) with joint mobilization techniques.

The device has been designed and made for the first time globally, in the form of a Ph.D. dissertation by Mohammad Hassan Azarsa, a physiotherapist and a medical robotics doctor at Tehran University of Medical Sciences.
