Abstract

This paper introduces a novel wheelchair mounted exoskeleton (WEXO) to aid patients with mobility impairment and limitation of their upper extremity. The WEXO integrates a four-degree-of-freedom (DOF) exoskeleton arm and a soft exoskeleton glove to assist arm motion and hand grasping. The kinematics of the WEXO were quantified using the Denavit-Hattenberg (DH) parameters and the possible input control modalities were investigated for accurate intention detection of ALS patients.
