PALACIOS, César. Rehabilitation system based on an electronic splint for recovery of wrist and radial nerve injuries. Novasinergia [online]. 2020, vol.3, n.1, pp.54-61. ISSN 2631-2654.

Abstract: In this work, a rehabilitation system based on an electronic splint for people that have suffered radial nerve injuries is presented. The system is composed of two parts: the electronic splint and the electrostimulator. Electrostimulation is performed utilizing controlled electric current at a frequency from 18 to 83 Hz with a triangular pulse train with 7 mA of amplitude. The splint has been made using surgical steel and textile materials to make it more comfortable for the patient. The splint moves from top to bottom and left to right by servo motors controlled by Matlab. The information of the rehabilitation system is stored in a database to be analyzed, even remotely, by a physiotherapist.

Keywords : Electronic splint; electronic stimulation; radial nerve injuries; rehabilitation process; wrist injuries.
