Abstract

Many conditions cause loss of coordination and motor capabilities in the extremities. One such condition is stroke, which affects approximately 15 million people worldwide each year. [1] Many robotic systems have been developed to assist in the physical and neurological rehabilitation of patients who have suffered a stroke. This project combines an alternate exo-skeletal actuator design with gamification elements to create an interface to be used in future robotic rehabilitation systems as well as address the compliance problem found in rehabilitation.
