Abstract

MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) are revolutionizing a multitude of industries world wide, from consumer products to the scientific community. Rehabilitation robotics is a robotic field specially interested in using the advantages of inertia 1 sensors. The essential aspect in this area is the intrinsic interaction between human and robot, which imposes several restrictions in the design of this sort of robots. This paper addresses the analysis of the application of inertial sensors as sensing technologies in controlled orthotic devices with a detailed analysis with two biomechatronic robotics rehabilitation exoskeletons, one for the upper and other for the lower limb. Eventually, the results and conclusion of the experiments are given.
