Abstract: Stroke is usually the sudden death of brain cells due to lack of oxygen, caused by blockage of blood flow or rupture of an artery to the brain. A stroke occurs when part of the brain loses its blood supply and stops working. This causes the part of the body that it controls to stop working as well.Wearable exoskeleton that need to be portable,lightweight, safe.. Most current hand exoskeletons have been designed specifically for rehabilitation, assistive or haptic applications to simplify the design requirements. There are several treatments for the stroke like endovascular treatments, surgical treatments etc. but the best treatment for the paralysis, strokes, is the physiotherapy. Usually, the therapy is done manually with an assistant. We propose a method in which the physiotherapy is done automatically with the help of simple mechanisms.
Exoskeleton robots were designed to increase strength and endurance of human limbs. This kind of robots could be used to increase the physical ability of either disabled or ordinary people for executing motion or manipulation tasks. The important point is to design such a shape that could be used safely, and accurately. This function could assist in walking, running, jumping or lifting objects that are beyond the human abilities to carry. In this paper, an upper body exoskeleton robot for rehabilitation applications is presented. This exoskeleton could be used for physiotherapy of whole arm of a patient, when the physiotherapist wears the armband device and performs predefined actions. The manufacturing points including 3D printing of the main parts and prototype of the robot with control instruments and designed mobile application for controlled over IoT.
