Abstract

In this paper, the control algorithms for strength exercise using wearable robotic hand are reviewed and the experimental results are analyzed and discussed. The SNU Exo-Glove is a soft exoskeleton that actuates motor function in disabled hands. This new type of device comprises a jointless simple mechanical structure and is actuated with wires. The strength exercise algorithms include isotonic, isokinetic, and impedance control exercises. An electromyography (EMG) regulation algorithm is proposed to limit the maximum level of activation of the muscles to prevent injury of the muscles and joints. The tension of the wire and the sEMG signal are analyzed to validate the effectiveness of rehabilitation with SNU Exo-Glove.
