Abstract

A robot arm/work table system has been designed at APL/JHU and evaluated at VA Medical Centers as an assistive device for the high spinal cord injured person. The goal of this system is to provide some level of independence to the disabled individual who possesses little or no manipulative function. The robot arm is a 6 degree-of-freedom device which is controlled by a low cost computer with both individual joint control and up to 48 preprogrammed motion sequences. This paper will describe the overall system and discuss alternative control input modes for the highly disabled person. Controllability and safety are two important issues which have commanded a high priority in the design. Testing has been conducted with over 20 volunteer quadriplegics and results of this clinical evaluation will be highlighted.
