Abstract: The assessment of hand posture and kinematicsis increasingly important in various fields. This includesthe rehabilitation of stroke survivors with restricted handfunction. This paper presents a modular, ambulatory mea-surement system for the assement of the remaining handfunction and for closed-loop controlled therapy. The de-vice is based on inertial sensors and utilizes up to fiveinterchangeable sensor strips to achieve modularity and tosimplify the sensor attachment. We introduce the modularhardware design and describe algorithms used to calculatethe joint angles. Measurements with two experimentalsetups demonstrate the feasibility and the potential of such a tracking device.
Subject(s): inertial measurement units
