[Abstract] Wrist flexion rehabilitation device using arm mbed microcontroller for post-stroke patient – Full Text PDF
Rehabilitation is a process of recovery of an individual from disabling or functionally limiting condition, whether temporary or irreversible, participates to regain maximal function, independence, and restoration . The purpose of rehabilitation is to prevent and slow down the loss of function of the body, improve and restore the function, compensation for the lost function, and maintenance of the current function.
Control of a exoskeleton with different sensors using a microcontroller and Matlab: This project will be used the exoskeleton for wrist rehabilitation and evaluation designed in the RoboticsLab. This device is actuated with SMA (Shape Memory Alloys) wires and it has two DOF. The objectives of the work will be: to integrate position and pressure sensors into the exoskeleton; to use the information of these sensors to control in position and / or strength the exoskeleton in repetitive tasks for the flexion-extension movement of the wrist; collect data on the execution of the task that could be used by the doctor to evaluate the patient’s progression.
