Present stroke rehabilitation devices for the arm are often difficult to use by the patient himself and cannot be used at home. A compliant shell mechanism could overcome the shortcomings of the current available devices. By the use of monolithic shell mechanisms a simple to use device can be designed, which can be made wearable. It would make...master thesis 2019
Scoliosis Brace Design: Utilizing Compliant Shell Mechanisms and Primary Compliance Vector Path OptimizationKooistra, Hylke (author)Existing scoliosis braces preclude spinal movement for activities of daily living, which reduces the willingness to wear the brace and treatment success. This work develops a scoliosis brace that meets corrective requirements while retaining patient mobility.master thesis 2019
