The exoskeleton linkage is composed of two chains in series giving a 2-degree-of-freedom full mechanism that is easily wearable.

Abstract

In this paper, a novel exoskeleton linkage is proposed for finger motion assistance in rehabilitation therapies because of reproducing finger motions. The exoskeleton linkage is composed of two chains in series giving a 2-degree-of-freedom full mechanism that is easily wearable. Design requirements are discussed to formulate a synthesis procedure whose design result gives a mechanical design for a prototype. The operation is simulated with results that are compared to experimental data with the built prototype to validate and characterize the proposed design. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019
