Robotic Upper Extremity Orthosis
DEKA Arm System
The DEKA Arm System, or the LUKE arm is an advanced prosthetic arm that has up to 10 powered degrees of freedom including a powered shoulder, humeral rotator, and multi-movement wrist. The arm offers state-of-the-art flexibility, strength, and dexterity to provide greater independence for people with forearm through shoulder-level amputations. The LUKE arm incorporates the latest technology in electronics, motors, batteries, and materials. It is a less-than-eight-pound prosthetic, advanced robot
The Exo-Glove Poly is a waterproof glove designed for people with hand injuries to help them grip objects when necessary. The Exo-Glove Poly fits over the thumb and two fingers of a person's hand and can help them perform simple, but previously impossible, tasks such as filling up a water glass.
Mind Controlled Bionic Hand
The Mind Controlled Robotic Arm is a prototype designed to help stroke victims retrain their brain to use their paralyzed upper extremities. The device comprises of a cap containing electrodes to pick up the brain signal and send it to a moveable brace on the arm. The device detects the wearer's intention to open or close the paralyzed hand, and moves it accordingly. Although in general the right side of the brain controls the left and vice versa, the developers discovered that a small area of t
This rechargeable vest is a new prototype developed by students at Stanford University designed to help minimize Parkinson's symptoms and reduce shaking. The Medtronic Recharging Vest, is designed for people with walking disabilities and specifically people with Parkinson's disease who are dependent on the use of an assistive device or a cane or walker in order to walk. Harpeet Sangha led a team determined to improve the cane prototype and they designed a vest to replace a walker.
Titan Arm Exoskeleton
---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a self-powered exoskeleton arm orthosis for individuals with upper extremity and neurological disabilities. The Titan Arm is an untethered, self-powered exoskeleton arm that can be constructed for less than $2,000. To wield this device, users attach the cable-driven mechanical appendage to one arm of the user with straps from a military-grade hiking backpack. It is controlled with a thumbstick on a nunchuck-like controller. If a load nee
