Abstract

Functional losses associated with hand impairments have led to the growing development of hand exoskeletons. The main challenges are to develop the exoskeletons that work according to the user’s motion intention, which can be done by utilizing the electromyogram signals generated by forearm muscles contributed from the movement and/or grasping abilities of the hand. In this research, modelling and EMG based control of hand exoskeletons with the aim to assist stroke survivors in regaining their hand strength and functionality, and improve their quality of life is presented.
