Abstract

This research aimed to develop an open-source exoskeleton for hand rehabilitation (EHR) device that can be controlled wirelessly in bilateral mode. This design has the advantage of being light and being controlled easily using WiFi-based wireless communication by non-paretic hands. This open-source EHR composed of two parts, namely the master and slave parts, each of which uses a mini ESP32 microcontroller, IMU sensor, and 3D printing. The mean RMSE obtained for all exoskeleton fingers is 9.04°. Since the EHR design is open source, the researchers can create and develop rehabilitation device for the therapeutic process of patients who are paralyzed or partially paralyzed independently using healthy hand.
