ALEx

The ALEx is a powered, stationary/fixed frame exoskeleton for the rehabilitation of the entire arm.  Robotic rehabilitation devices benefit from being able to reproduce the exact same movement path repeatedly.

The ALEx can also be integrated with visual feedback such as video games and virtual reality.

Description

The ALEx is a robotic exoskeleton for neuromotor rehabilitation of upper limb functions.  The design is derived from the PERCRO laboratory of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and their applications in clinical rehabilitation after stroke.  It can repeatedly achieve guided movements with controlled forces and torque.

The ALEx can be used for physical rehabilitation due to neurological, musculoskeletal, orthopedic disorders and dysfunctions.  It has been successfully utilized for stroke neuromotor rehabilitation and shoulder rehabilitation post shoulder surgery (no small task, the shoulder is the most complex single joint in the human body).
