In today’s world, there has been an increase in the usage of domestic purpose robots for assisting human activities. Such robots are more effective for physically handicapped people. Sometimes during an accident, person may suffer from a stroke. A stroke occurs when there is a blood clot which blocks the flow of blood due to which a blood vessel breaks, interrupting flow to a particular area of the brain. Functions performed by that area of the brain are lost which include speech, movement, and memory. This paper deals with recovery of human arm movement loss. The wearable exoskeleton robot for upper extremity rehabilitation is taken as the research object. The virtual rehabilitation system was generated in Simulink to carry out dynamic simulation. Robotic rehabilitation has been an effective method since the early 1990’s and is proving to have a significant effect on the fast recovery of stroke affected patients.
