    A fast kinematic-based control method for lower-limb power augmentation exoskeleton

    , Article 2014 2nd RSI/ISM International Conference on Robotics and Mechatronics, ICRoM 2014 ; 2014 , pp. 678-683 ; ISBN: 9781479967438 Taherifar, A ; Vossoughi, G. R ; Ghafari, A. S ; Jokar, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Exoskeletons are robotic devices which are used in power augmentation and rehabilitation robotics. The exoskeleton control system is one of the most challenging issues in humanrobot interaction systems. Although the rehabilitation robotic control methods are well studied, little research has been conducted on power augmenting control methods. This paper presents a novel idea in control system of exoskeletons for load carrying and power augmentation. Here, the desired linear velocity of the exoskeleton in interaction points are taken to be proportional to interaction force at the corresponding location. The introduced control method is merely based on kinematic model and thus easy to... 

    Design and development of a hand robotic rehabilitation device for post stroke patients

    , Article Proceedings of the 31st Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society: Engineering the Future of Biomedicine, EMBC 2009, 2 September 2009 through 6 September 2009, Minneapolis, MN ; 2009 , Pages 5026-5029 ; 9781424432967 (ISBN) Rashedi, E ; Mirbagheri, A ; Taheri, B ; Farahmand, F ; Vossoughi, G.

    Robot-mediated rehabilitation is a rapidly advancing discipline that seeks to develop improved treatment procedures using new technologies, e.g., robotics, coupled with modern theories in neuroscience and rehabilitation. A robotic device was designed and developed for rehabilitation of upper limbs of post stroke patients. A novel force feedback bimanual working mode provided real-time dynamic sensation of the paretic hand. Results of the preliminary clinical tests revealed a quantitative evaluation of the patient's level of paresis and disability. ©2009 IEEE  

    Objective measurement of inferior-directed stiffness in glenohumeral joint using a specially designed robotic device in healthy shoulders; within- and between-session reliability

    Clinical assessment of capsuloligamentous structures of the glenohumeral joint has been qualitative and subjective in nature, as demonstrated by limited intra- and inter-rater reliability. Robotic devices were utilized to develop a clinically objective measurement technique for glenohumeral joint stiffness. The purpose of this study was to quantify the amount of inferior-direction stiffness of the glenohumeral joint using a safe clinical device in the asymptomatic individuals, and to determine between trial and between session reliability of the robotic device. Twenty healthy subjects were recruited via convenience sampling. Inferior-directed translation and applying force were measured...
