  1. Mean and standard deviation (SD) of therapists' responses to the use of the haptic platform in regards to the range of motion, movement resemblance to traditional therapy, setup procedure difficulty, removal procedure difficulty, prototype's handle (i.e., end-effector), resistance power sufficiency, comfort level, perceived safety, and quality of motion (QOM). Ratings are from 1 (bad) to 4 (good), N = 8.
