Mike Schubert, Holly Liang, Caitlin Makatura, Bryan Solomon, Julie Walker Abstract Although recent improvements in prosthetic technology allow a user to control an upper limb prosthesis with some dexterity, a method for receiving proprioceptive feedback (the feeling of body position) has not yet been implemented in commercial hardware. The user must rely on visual feedback […]
We present a novel brain computer interface, the IpsiHand, which combines advances in neurophysiology, electronics, and rehabilitation.
User centred design techniques were used to develop a rehabilitation robotic device that would increase access to rehabilitation and give therapists another tool in the rehabilitation of the upper limb of stroke survivors.
