Title
(EN) A BACKDRIVABLE, ELECTRICALLY POWERED ORTHOTIC DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ORTHÉTIQUE ENTRAÎNÉ ÉLECTRIQUEMENT ET POUVANT ÊTRE ENTRAÎNÉ EN ARRIÈRE
Abstract
(EN) A compact, powered, orthotic device for pediatric use enables the user to control relative motion of the upper arm and the forearm about the elbow and grasping motions of the thumb and fingers. The device is powered by a set of battery-driven, backdrivable linear actuators that are positioned remotely from an arm of the subject. Control of motion of the device by the subject occurs by means of electromyographic signals from a sensor array in contact with skin on the arm of the subject. The sensors in the sensor array may be held in place on the forearm, on the upper arm, or at any other convenient location on the arm.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif orthétique compact, motorisé pour une utilisation pédiatrique qui permet à l'utilisateur de commander un mouvement relatif du bras supérieur et de l'avant-bras autour de coude et des mouvements de préhension du pouce et des doigts. Le dispositif est alimenté par un ensemble d'actionneurs linéaires entraînés par batterie et pouvant être entraînés en arrière qui sont positionnés à distance d'un bras du sujet. La commande du mouvement du dispositif par le sujet se produit au moyen de signaux électromyographiques provenant d'un réseau de capteurs en contact avec la peau sur le bras du sujet. Les capteurs dans le réseau de capteurs peuvent être maintenus en place sur l'avant-bras, sur le bras supérieur ou à n'importe quel autre emplacement pratique sur le bras.
