|Title:||Development of a physiotherapeutic exercise device for rehabilitation||Authors:||Wong, Kum Soon.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Mechanical engineering::Assistive technology||Issue Date:||2004||Abstract:||One method of rehabilitation includes the gradual increase of resistance-type exercise for the fingers and hands. Hand exercisers are well known devices for use in this purpose. Three conceptual designs were generated after conducting a critical analysis on the existing products available in the market. Biomechanics and Anthropometry are two aspects of human factor considered before finalizing the proposed design. Due to the cost constraint, a single-plunger resistive hand exerciser was proposed to improve the strength and flexibility of the fingers and hand.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/5385||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
