Abstract

This paper deals with robotic exoskeletons and their using in rehabilitation of the upper limbs. First part describes application of robotic devices in rehabilitation. In the second part there is described an architecture of rehabilitation robotic system and its main subsystems. Third part of the proposed paper is dedicated to robotic exoskeletons. This section deals with internal and external force action in exoskeletons. In the last part of the paper, there is shown design of robotic exoskeleton for the upper limb.
