Abstract

Restoring hand functions may greatly improve the post-stroke life quality. In this work, we developed a new interactive rehabilitation robot for hand function training after stroke. The robotic system can provide three modes of training: 1) continuous passive motion; 2) electromyography (EMG)-triggered motion; and 3) continuous EMG-driven motion to simulate the hand opening, grip and pinch tasks. The system also can quantitatively record finger force, finger positions, and EMG during training tasks.
