Abstract

This paper presents the development of a portable version of the robotic elbow exoskeleton NEUROExos, designed for the treatment of stroke survivors in acute/sub-acute phases. The design was improved by a novel Series Elastic Actuation (SEA) system. The system implements two control modalities: a near-zero output impedance torque control and a passive-compliance position control.
