Title: H-Man : refinement of a planar 2-DOF robotic manipulandum for use in clinical settings and at home

Abstract: H-Man Final Year Project Academic Year 2016 / 2017 explores the design possibilities of using 3D printing technology and off the shelf materials to develop a lightweight, portable and effective end-effector to aid neuro-rehabilitation of stroke patients. The designs explored are a continuation of the previous final year project done on the H-Man handle. The end-effector is built to resemble hand motions from activities of daily living (ADLs) such as gripping and lifting, to improve the overall effectiveness of the rehabilitation treatment. The current H-Man is a 2D planar manipulative device, to which a third degree or vertical axis has to be implemented on the end-effector to increase the overall range of motion of the user. This paper presents experimentation on various measuring devices such as the use of micro load cells, and light dependent resistor to incorporate the aforementioned range of motion and activities.
