Abstract

Spasticity is the most common factor of calf muscles flexibility problems.It is a condition where the calf muscles continuously experiencing contractions.This will result in fixed contracture of the muscles which eventually will result in gait abnormalities and other related consequences.To treat spasticity,patient undergoes rehabilitation program which offers physical and occupational therapy which involves usage of various robotic equipment or device.However,the existing equipment are still lacking and many refinement and modification are needed to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.The aim of this project is to design a wearable ankle rehabilitation device for patient with calf muscles flexibility problems to carry out physical therapy by using Arduino Uno.This device is easy to be used and no assistance from a third party is needed to operate the device.The ankle brace is low in cost and suitable for various sizes of ankles.A servo motor is mounted onto the ankle brace to help in moving the joint. A joystick module is used to control the actuation of the motor.By using MyoWareTM Muscle Sensor,the electromyography (EMG) signal is obtained and used to control the servo motor together with the joystick module.The robotic ankle brace device accommodates the robot-guided at-home therapy requirements and is user-friendly.By using this device to perform ankle stretching exercises involving dorsiflexion and plantar flexion, patient recovery process can be reduced effectively.It also reduces the risk of experiencing calf muscles flexibility problems.
