Upper Limb Exoskeleton Controlled by Stepper Motor
The effectiveness of rehabilitation is closely linked with suitably chosen therapy. The treatment can be performed only by specialized personnel or through the use of automated devices. One of the potential solution of this problem is exoskeleton. It is the kind of suit that allows the user assumed to support or even replace the human motor. The paper presents a proposal of the exoskeleton with 1 degree of freedom providing upper extremity rehabilitation in the elbow with the master-slave program. Control is via stepper motor which ensures high accuracy in the implementation of programmed movements.
