We developed a new training system UR-System 2 for restoring motor function of the upper limb after stroke in patients with hemiplegia. And then, we conducted clinical evaluation of the therapeutic effect of training with the UR-System 2 in six patients. The UR-System uses Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) to promote muscle strength. The results show the immediate therapeutic effect of training with the UR-System 2 for restoring the motor function of the upper limb.
