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).
