Substituting of Upper Human Extremities Functions — Where We are Going?
The paper presents some medical, technical and methodological aspects of the problem of supporting lost motorial functions of upper human extremities.
Some results obtained in application of hybrid system for supporting the grasp movements - alive manipulators - are described.
