Resumen


Resumen

En el presente artículo se muestra el diseño y el análisis cinemático de un prototipo de exoesqueleto para la rehabilitación de mano. El dispositivo se diseña para que sea capaz de desarrollar movimientos independientes en cada uno de los dedos, tomando en cuenta la antropometría de personas mexicanas y considerando factores de ergonomía, funcionalidad, diseño para el ensamble y la manufactura. Como resultado se presenta el prototipo de exoesqueleto para rehabilitación de mano, indicando los materiales utilizados, así como el análisis cinemático de los dedos. El diseño es evaluado mediante simulaciones numéricas en MATLAB® para el análisis cinemático del exoesqueleto, mostrando su espacio de trabajo.

DESIGN OF AN EXOSKELETON PROTOTYPE FOR HAND REHABILITATION


Abstract

The present article shows the design of an exoskeleton prototype for hand rehabilitation. The device has been designed to develop independent movement in each finger and taking into account the Mexican people’s anthropometry and considering ergonomic factors, functionality, design for assembly and for manufacturing. As results we present the prototype of exoskeleton for hand rehabilitation, indicating the used materials, as well as the kinematic analysis of the fingers. The design is evaluated by numerical simulations in MATLAB® for the exoskeleton kinematic analysis, showing its workspace.

Keywords: Exoskeleton, Mechanical design, Rehabilitation.
