Abstract

More than 10% of deaths worldwide have occurred due to stroke. In India the incidence of the disease is to be around 130 per 100, 000 populations. The concept of assistive movement stroke therapy is new but widely known. The goal is to develop an assistive device for the individual movement of fingers of stroke patient. The device consists of a strain gauge sensor that will sense the amount of input/effort from the user. The sensed analog signals are converted to digital and then send it to a micro controller that determines the output of stepper motor. The stepper motor moves the individual fingers of the stroke patient.
