exoskeleton for the upper limb and its application as an assistive device. The kinematic and dynamic dataset of the upper limb during daily living activities was one among sev-eral factors guiding the development of an anthropomorphic, seven degree-of-freedom, powered arm exoskeleton. Additional design inputs include anatomical and physiological. Upper-extremity control (% of treatment time) and dressing (% of treatment time) were the most frequently provided activities. Interventions provided most frequently during upper-extremity control activities were strengthening, motor learning, and postural awareness. by:
Scooping and pouring water. Doing high fives with your palm up. Filling plastic eggs with things that make sounds; one hand holds the egg. Carrying books or trays with your palms facing up. Bouncing a tennis ball on a tennis racket. Wringing out a towel by twisting it. Turning the pages of a book. Playing the “guess-which-hand” game where. In particular, the need for metrics to assess activity performance of adults with upper limb amputation has been well documented. In response to that need, Resnik et al. 6 developed the Activities Measure for Adults with Upper Limb Amputation (AM-ULA). The AM-ULA is an item performance-based measure of activity appropriate for upper Cited by: 4.
Book an appointment. Hand Therapy. Hand therapists provide therapeutic interventions to prevent dysfunction, restore function and/or reverse the progression of pathology of the upper limb to enhance a patient’s ability to participate fully in life activities. To overcome these issues while at the same time facilitating some activities of daily living (ADLs) such as self-feeding as well as providing rehabilitation, we have proposed to design and develop an upper-limb robotic exoskeleton that can be fitted to the person's disabled limb during the meal time.

The problems with postural control and upper limb function seen in children with CP affect all aspects of occupational performance. It is for this reason that evaluation of posture, postural adjustments, and their interactions with the upper limb particularly should be part of a therapeutic assessment, as well as the status of body structures.
