This project presents two devices developed in the field of assistance and rehabilitation robotics: the robotic sixth finger and a rehabilitative exoskeleton.
The robotic sixth finger is a wearable device designed to help people with hand mobility limitations (for instance people spinal cord injury or post-stroke situations). The purpose of the device is to restore the ability to grasp objects with the affected hand.
In the context of helping people with motor deficits through robotics, we have created an exoskeleton for the rehabilitation of the wrist and the hand. This device is low cost and allows to record physical therapy exercises in order to playback them, even at home.
