Abstract

Movement performance in patients with neurological or orthopaedic traumas can be improved with Task-oriented repetitive movement. The application of robotics can assist, enhance, evaluate, and document neurological and orthopaedic rehabilitation of movements. A key point is the mechanical interface between the device and the user, it has to be adaptable to every patient with different anthropomorphic sizes. Furthermore, the mechanical interface must permit the needed movement for rehabilitation while avoiding dangerous ones. This paper presents design of a mechanical interface for a cable-driven rehabilitation device in terms of conceptual design and stress simulation. The interface is then tested during some rehabilitation exercises to test its usefulness. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.
