A finger exoskeleton has been developed to aid treatment of tendon injuries. The exoskeleton is designed to assist flexion/extension motions of a finger within its full range, in a natural and coordinated manner, while keeping the tendon tension within acceptable limits to avoid gap formation or rupture of the suture. In addition to offering robot assisted operation modes for tendon therapies, the exoskeleton can provide quantitative measures of recovery that can help guide the physical therapy program. Usability studies have been conducted and efficacy of exoskeleton driven exercises to reduce muscle requitement levels has been demonstrated.
