Abstract: In the recent year, stroke has been one of the major cause of disability among adults. Hemiparesis or paralysis on one side of the body is the most common disability when there is an interruption in the blood flow to the brain cells. It is not permanent, through intensive treatment and training, the patient can regain his ability to move and control the paralyzed part of his body. However, the most common method of rehabilitation requires assistance from at least one therapist, and it will be labor intensive and costly for the patient. One of the possible solution that is currently been developed by the researchers, is by using robot to reduce the therapist cost and increase the frequency of the treatment. Many robots and system have been developed by the researchers to help the patient undergo the treatment from walking, talking, chewing and grabbing item. To fully making use of the device, a good design and system that suit the need of the patient is required. This project will focus on development of robot system to facilitate the stroke patient for independent training and bring it to the market. The focus in this report is to design and develop an EMG based exoskeleton to help the patient in training his paralyzed fingers. For the convenience of the patient, a device which can easily be controlled is required. For the design, the author will develop a simple yet effective exoskeleton to be easily carried and used at the patient’s own time.
