Abstract

This book describes a new method for tremor suppression by means of a wearable exoskeleton that estimates in realtime the amount of biomechanical load to be applied. Therefore, it is in this field of rehabilitation robotics for tremor suppression that estimation of instantaneous tremor amplitude and frequency becomes mandatory, as it is necessary to obtain reliable tremor models that generate effective suppression commands. In addition to being important to distinguish between desired and undesired motion, the analysis of the tremor signal, both in terms of frequency and amplitude, is relevant to assess the stationary characteristics of tremor, i.e. frequency drift and amplitude variation.
