Although rehabilitation robotics have been used for helping disabled persons in various areas of disability, such as stroke rehabilitation and autistic children education, very little research has been done with the brain injured persons and robotics. This paper discusses the implementation of two simple models, which can rehabilitate quadriplegic brain injured people. One consists of brain body interface, a computer, an interface program and an electronic circuit to link the computer to a robotic arm. The second one a robot called iMOBO, which learns how to assist disability as it goes along. The paper proceeds to explore the new avenues available to enhance this exploratory research.
