The paper addresses the design of a micro wrist for needle laparoscopic surgery (needlescopy) using MEMS technology and an original 3 degree of freedom, 3D architecture. Advancement in needlescopy drives the development of multi-dof micro-tools 1-2mmin diameter with 3D mobility but standard available fabricationtechniques are for 2.5D structures. The paper discusses thedevelopment steps and design solutions for the realization...
Design and Evaluation of the Platform for Weight-Shifting Exercises with Compensatory Forces Monitoring
Details of a platform for the rehabilitation of people with severe balance impairment are discussed in the paper. Based upon a commercially available static parapodium, modified to fit force sensors, this device is designed to give a new, safe tool to physiotherapists. It is designed for the patients who cannot maintain equilibrium during a bipedal stance and need to hold to or lean on something during the rehabilitation. Visual,...
In the paper authors present a device designed to improve the rehabilitation process of people with balance impairment. The discussed device (JStep) utilizes a commercially available static standing frame (stander) modified in order to fit force sensing units under the feet and in the pillows around the hips of a patient. While executing rehabilitation tasks, the patient may compensate his balance deficiency by leaning on the pillows...
