Abstract


The study describes the possibilities of usage of industrial robots in development and research of rehabilitation positioning facility. Sphere of usage is in the field of rehabilitation centers and it can be either professional or for improving life of older people. An articulated industrial robot Mitsubishi RV-2AJ with five degrees of freedom was used as a positioning facility. Rehabilitation facility is designed for an upper limb and it is connected to the robot with a flexible coupling through the effector. Using this facility we can easy achieve any position in 3D space (workspace of robot) to define a test trajectory in the drawing window. It is possible to change the speed of movement on a trajectory.
