Abstract

This research work proposes a simulation-based planification tool for the selection of the most suitable configuration parameters of an assistance-as-needed controlled upper limb neurorehabilitation orthosis. The selection of these parameters is performed by applying planification algorithms that analyze the results of a set of simulation batteries. Obtained results demonstrate that the proposed system is able to find those assistance-as-needed configuration parameters that match a selected clinical criterion for a specific patient.
