Regenesis workstation This was the approach taken at the Neil Squire Foundation in designing their Regenesis manipulator (Fig. 3) [3] to best suit the environment and tasks. Their manipulator was based on a horizontal beam, around which an extending arm could translate and rotate. This gave access to a large working volume and could be mounted at the back of a desk, or across a bed for example. This device was, for a while, made commercially available. 2 Rehabilitation Robotics from Past to Present – A Historical Perspective 31 Fig.
