In this paper, an electroencephalogram (EEG) based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is integrated with a robotic system designed to target rehabilitation therapies of stroke patients such that patients can control the rehabilitation robot by imagining movements of their right arm. In particular, the power density of frequency bands are used as features from(More)
Passive velocity field control is advantageous to deliver human-in-the-loop contour tracking rehabilitation exercises, since patients can be allowed to proceed with their preferred pace, while assistance can still be provided as determined by the therapist with ensured coupled stability. We introduce a framework based on passive velocity field control for(More)
This paper presents the design, analysis, and a clinical application of a reconfigurable, parallel mechanism based, force feedback exoskeleton for the human ankle. The device can either be employed as a balance/proprioception trainer or configured to accommodate range of motion (RoM)/strengthening exercises. The exoskeleton can be utilized as a clinical(More)
We present the design and control of series elastic holonomic mobile platform, ASSISTON-MOBILE, aimed to administer therapeutic table-top exercises to patients who have suffered injuries that affect the function of their upper extremities. The proposed mobile platform is a low-cost, portable, easy-to-use rehabilitation device for home use. ASSISTON-MOBILE(More)
We present a systematic approach that enables online modification/adaptation of robot assisted rehabilitation exercises by continuously monitoring intention levels of patients utilizing an electroencephalogram (EEG) based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI). In particular, we use Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) to classify event-related synchronization (ERS)(More)
This paper presents design, implementation and control of a 3RPS-R exoskeleton, specifically built to impose targeted therapeutic exercises to forearm and wrist. Design of the exoskeleton features enhanced ergonomy, enlarged workspace and optimized device performance when compared to previous versions of the device. Passive velocity field control (PVFC) is(More)
— We embed knowledge representation and automated reasoning in each level of the classical 3-layer robot control architecture, in such a way as to tightly integrate these layers. At the high-level, we represent not only actions and change but also commonsense knowledge in the action description language C+. Geometric reasoning is lifted to the high-level by(More)
