Abstract

In this paper, we propose a three-degree-of-freedom (3 DOF) mobile exoskeleton robot for rehabilitation and motion assist in daily activity for physically weak persons. This exoskeleton robot is activated based on the skin surface electromyogram (EMG) signals and the generated wrist force during the upper limb motion. The effectiveness of the proposed system has been evaluated by experiment.
