Abstract
The exoskeleton is getting important to humans in many aspects such as power assist, muscle training, pneumatic functioning and rehabilitation. The research and development towards these functions are expected to be combined and integrated with the human intelligent and machine power, eventually becoming another generation of robot which will enhance the machine intelligence and human power. The designing of fully functioning motorised prosthetic arm with coordinating speed of response and strength is the aim of upper extremity prosthetics research. The current state-of-the-art prosthesis can be considered to be a tool rather than an upper limb replacement. The prosthesis is the device which can be worn as per will and can be removed when not wanted. The major factors limiting pneumatic prosthesis to tools are practical ones due to the heavy weight, less power, and size of the component as well as the difficulty in finding appropriate control sources to control the number of degrees of freedom. The exoskeleton also finds its application in physically weak people to regain their power they lost after stroke. This project reviews the upper extremity exoskeleton with different functions, actuators and degree of freedom (DOF). Among the functions, power-assist and rehabilitation have been highlighted In addition; the structure of exoskeleton is separated by its DOF in terms of Upper extremity. This paper reviews the upper extremity exoskeleton with different functions, actuators and degree of freedom (DOF). Among the functions, rehabilitation and power assist have been highlighted In addition, the structure of exoskeleton is separated by its DOF in terms of shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand.
