Abstract

This paper presents a control method for a medical glove with intelligent actuators for a hand with disabilities. The medical glove has got on outer superior face, an intelligent actuator to every finger, which helps it to bend and to grasp different objects and on outer inferior face a force distributed sensor system. The dynamic model of the outer superior face finger is determined and an approximate model is proposed. The two-level hierarchical control is adopted. The upper level coordinator gathers all the necessary information to resolve the distribution force. Then, the lower-level local control problem is treated as an open-chain hyper-redundant structure control problem. The fuzzy rules are established and a fuzzy controller is proposed.
