Abstract

© 2018, Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature. Stroke is one of the major causes of disabilities among elderly people which have a negative effect on the life quality and independent living. Robotic assisted rehabilitation enable physical therapists to create patient oriented, individual therapies aiming to achieve high level of recovery for the motoric lost functions. However there exists no standardization in the design of such devices. This paper presents a set of critical design characteristics and constraints for rehabilitation robotics. Based on this data an innovative spherical robot for shoulder rehabilitation is presented. Its workspace modelling and trajectory simulation illustrate the robot capabilities of performing from simple to complex trajectories having a high degree of universality for the given task.
