Abstract

In this paper a novel design of a non-powered orthosis for stroke rehabilitation is reported. Designed for home based use, it is the first low-cost, passive design to incorporate an assistive level that can be adaptively varied within a closed-loop control scheme. This allows the device to be integrated with a dual robotic and electrical stimulation control scheme, to thereby enable full exploitation of the motor relearning principles which underpin both robotic therapy and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) based stroke rehabilitation. This embeds the potential for more effective treatment. The paper focuses on the mechanical design of the non-powered orthosis, providing detailed design, dynamic analysis and evaluation.
