Paper Title:
Design of a Hand Exoskeleton Rehabilitation Device
  Abstract

As stroke is one of the most morbidity disease, some rehabilitation devices has been developed to solve the problem, but there isn’t maturation in hand. This paper presents a new hand exoskeleton rehabilitation device to improve the result of rehabilitation and help doctors to perfect theory about hand rehabilitation. We set 8 DOF in this three fingers device, with 2 active DOF and 1 coupled DOF in index or middle finger, 1 active DOF and 1 passive DOF in thumb. The 5 active DOF is driven by motors. The transmission consists of screw nut and multi-link mechanism. We control the device through a typical secondary control system. As this device is designed to help patients not only regain the range of flexion/extension but also complete some typical simple grasping movements. To substantiate the feasibility, an experiment has been carried out. Finally, Suggestions for improvement are given.
