Description

In this research project, the mechanics of the wrist are examined and a machine designed for use in Physical Therapy to strengthen the wrist through repeated flexion and extension. To accomplish this, a machine is to be designed and built that will give the user and Physical Therapist the ability to monitor and use the machine to achieve strength and range of motion in the wrist. In the design of this machine, the materials used to provide the resistance have to be thoughtfully calculated, chosen, and tested to provide the right amount of resistance and range of motion for the user.
