Abstract: Nowadays, it has been actively expanded to develop assist robots attached directly. In this study, we focused on developing an exoskeletal robot, specifically, a force transmission robot with a rotary drive type ratchet mechanism, to enable users with upper limb disability to make use of their residual function to achieve better function of their upper limbs. A lock/unlock mechanism on the elbow joint is effectively used to transmit the user’s residual function around the shoulder to the hand. We conducted verification experiments on whether the developed mechanism enables the user to transfer the remaining force in the shoulder joint to operation force in the hand. Three subjects with C5 and C6 spinal cord injury with disabilities affecting their hands, lower limbs, and trunk muscles performed the verification experiment with the developed device. We confirmed that they could operate a wheelchair on a slope and on grass when using the developed device, and they could use their residu al function around the shoulder more strongly. It can be expected to rehabilitation effect. (More)
