The Institute for Mechatronics in Mechanics is developing a therapy system to make the rehabilitation process easier. With a small and lightweight design, the device can be used for home rehabilitation and can be installed on the patients’ hands. To have such a system, there is a need for portable actuators and sensors. Flexible sensors and actuators have the potential to revolutionize medical robotics, wearable devices, and the application domains that require a safe interaction between human and machine.

In this work, the specifications of the actuators and sensors will be analysed. The design regulations have drift to the development of the sensors and actuators and provide a first concept for the mechanical and structural design. The focus is on actuation and sensory part, as the materials used may be subject to change. An optimization in the structure according to load should therefore be considered. Following a literature review, the investigation should be carried out on the basis of simulations and practical experiments. The simulation will be done according to the loads. There is a design for robot but its structure is for fix motors. Thus, may be it is needed to have some changes in the structure.

Target of the work is design, develop, and test some wearable actuators and sensors which can be used in advanced robotic wearable systems that increase the efficiency of the rehabilitation process.
