Active hand orthosis for post-stroke rehabilitation

contact: prof. Giulio Rosati
centre: UniPd - DIMEG
start: 2007
Topic: Medicals


Single degree of freedom active hand orthosis for hand rehabilitation in the acute and sub-acute stroke patients. The hand orthosis employs one elastic actuator to produce force controlled trajectories of the fingers, keeping a highly compliant interaction with the patient during the assisted training of the paretic hand. This feature is particularly desirable in the rehabilitation treatment of acute and sub-acute patients. The control system is based on a microcontroller and a driver for the motor. The former realizes the force closed-loop control, the latter manages the internal speed control loop.
