In this paper, a novel exoskeleton for finger rehabilitation is presented. The exoskeleton is designed as a serial, 2-degrees-of-freedom wearable mechanism that is able to follow human finger motion. Motion tracking is used to characterize the movement of the human finger. Thereby the design requirements are outlined.

Abstract

In this paper, a novel exoskeleton for finger rehabilitation is presented. The exoskeleton is designed as a serial, 2-degrees-of-freedom wearable mechanism that is able to follow human finger motion. Motion tracking is used to characterize the movement of the human finger. Thereby the design requirements are outlined. The mechanism is synthesized, and its simulated motion is compared with experimental data to validate the proposed design. © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
