High stroke-to-length ratio direct-drive electromagnetic actuators for upper limb rehabilitation robots

Soroosh's thesis is focused on the development of a single DOF shoulder gravity compensation exoskeleton for post-stroke upper limb rehabilitation. In particular, the project is aimed at developing a novel direct-drive linear motor to drive the robot. Comparing to the conventional motors, such actuators offer higher force-to-mass ratios and lower inherent mechanical impedance, valuable properties for an effective rehabilitation device.
