The purpose of this work was to design and create a rehabilitation robot that would allow people to recover the whole potential of their hand muscles. There are many ways to do it:
But we thought that the best manner to put an injured person up was to make his rehabilitation as fun as possible.
To do so, we based the project on a pulley system that uses the pressure we exert when we close our hand. Thanks to springs, the robot goes mechanically back to its initial state.
We imagined many modes and levels to adapt the device for all kinds of patient: Classic, Challenge, Reflex and Video Game. As a matter of fact, it has to be useful for many people as possible. This is why we built a mechanism based on a screw driven by a servomotor to adapt the degree of difficulty. In addition, the device takes into account the gender of the user to adapt the level to men or women.
