アブストラクト: As the number of patients suffering from cerebrovascular disease (CVD) increases, it is desired that the patients will be able to receive proper rehabilitation at home without specialists' help. For this, we have developed a finger-dedicated robotic rehabilitation support device that is compact enough to be used at home. The device induces voluntary muscular contraction at a finger by the help of power assisted finger lifter. The lifter is a simple lever on which the patient places his/her finger. Although the mechanism is simple to be used at home, there is a question whether applying only a finger-dedicated rehabilitation is sufficient to improve the quality of life of a patient including recovery of upper limb functions. To answer this question, we conducted experiments that show skill transfer from finger to elbow. In the experiments, subjects are asked to train to produce a specified force at their fingers. After training, it was shown that the subjects are able to perform the same skill by using elbow, where no training was performed. The results support that the finger-dedicated rehabilitation would be appropriate as a target for a robotic home rehabilitation device.
