The paper proposes control algorithms for Single-DOF Powered Exoskeleton used in physiotherapy and rehabilitation of the human upper limb. Proposed algorithms use EMG signals from single muscles as well as antagonist muscle pairs, to maximize the users intuitive control over the exoskeleton system. The paper is also a design summary of the problems and experiences gathered from building of Single-DOF Upper Limb Exoskeleton using linear electric actuators.
