Overview

Top Research Topics at IEEE International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics?

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (36.34%)
  • Simulation (33.46%)
  • Robot (25.09%)

The conference facilitates discussions on Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Simulation, Robot, Rehabilitation and Physical therapy. The Physical medicine and rehabilitation works featured in it incorporate elements from Biomechanics and Rehabilitation robotics. In addition to Rehabilitation robotics research, the conference aims to explore topics under Robot kinematics and Haptic technology.

The majority of Simulation studies presented zero in on Exoskeleton. Robot research featured in the event incorporates concerns from various other topics such as Task (project management) and Human–computer interaction. The main emphasis of IEEE International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics is the subject of Rehabilitation, focusing on Neurorehabilitation.

The event holds forums on Physical therapy that merges themes from other disciplines such as Spinal cord injury, Upper limb, Wrist and Elbow. The research on Artificial intelligence tackled can also make contributions to studies in the areas of Work (physics), Speech recognition and Pattern recognition. The conference focuses on Gait analysis but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Ankle and Orthotics.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Estimation of IMU and MARG orientation using a gradient descent algorithm (1224 citations)
  • Active Leg Exoskeleton (ALEX) for Gait Rehabilitation of Motor-Impaired Patients (215 citations)
  • An EMG-driven exoskeleton hand robotic training device on chronic stroke subjects: Task training system for stroke rehabilitation (175 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at IEEE International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics:

The most cited articles tackle a plethora of topics, such as Simulation, Exoskeleton, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Rehabilitation robotics and Robot. The most cited publications address concerns in Simulation which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Robotics, Control engineering, Actuator, Robot control and Gait analysis. The conference papers explore topics in Physical medicine and rehabilitation which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Rehabilitation, Physical therapy, Biomechanics, Wrist and Stroke patient.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The conference was organized to reinforce research efforts on Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Exoskeleton, Artificial intelligence, Task analysis and Robot. Issues in Physical medicine and rehabilitation were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Rehabilitation, Work (physics) and Ankle. The Exoskeleton study which was featured in IEEE International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics aims to expound on the research in Simulation.

While Artificial intelligence is the focus of IEEE International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics, it also provided insights into the studies of Computer vision and Pattern recognition. IEEE International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics tackles studies in Human–computer interaction and the interrelated subject of Control (management) to gain insights into Task analysis. Concepts in Trajectory, as well as related topics in Preferred walking speed, are covered in the Robot research presented in it.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • User-driven walking assistance: first experimental results using the MyoSuit* (18 citations)
  • Preliminary Design of an Environment Recognition System for Controlling Robotic Lower-Limb Prostheses and Exoskeletons (14 citations)
  • Design and Validation of a Partial-Assist Knee Orthosis with Compact, Backdrivable Actuation (13 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2019 edition, 2.88% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 18.81% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 10.89% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 25.25% of all publications and 45.05% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
