Abstract

This paper proposes a novel design of a robotic hand exoskeleton device (PMHand) for the purpose of aiding post stroke rehabilitation. The main effects of a stroke on the human hand and the current rehabilitation methods and their limitations are briefly reviewed. The design process and fabrication of a full hand exoskeleton, control system and preliminary experimental results are presented in detail.
