Abstract : Robots for rehabilitation are required to be small and lightweight so as not to hinder the movement of the user. In this study, we designed and manufactured a Remote Actuation System (RAS) using two sets of tubes, wires and pulleys. RAS was implemented on a prototype of upper limb rehabilitation robot to test its feasibility.
