A novel robot for hand rehabilitation is described. The robot is a continuation of the work done with MIT-MANUS, a robot-aided neuro-rehabilitation workstation. Flexure bearings are used in conjunction with a cable-drive transmission system. The requirements of the robot and key design elements are described. We are presently completing assembly and should commence shortly with system characterization and clinical testing.
