Neurological disorders are increasing globally due to various factors such as change in lifestyle patterns as well as personal and professional stress. Scientists belonging to various research and development organizations from a variety of disciplines are working together to invent new rehabilitation devices. Emerging trends in electronics and information technology-enabled devices provide a platform for scientists to engage in innovation to enhance the independence of patients with neurological disorders. This chapter summarizes the use of advanced technology to create smart rehabilitation devices such as wearable devices, non-invasive stimulators, brain-computer interface (BCI), and neuro-robotic systems. By the end of this chapter, the reader will have acquired knowledge about various advanced smart neuro-rehabilitation devices related to several neurological disorders. The current challenges faced by neuro-rehabilitation scientists are discussed at the end of the chapter.
