Abstract

Statistical data identifies about 10÷20% of the population in the developed countries is disabled, half of them requiring the assistance of special devices to substitute or support diminished manipulation and locomotion functions. Together with developments in recent years, new trends address the design and application of different types of manipulators, which enable the patient to help in contact the outside world although confined at home and permit him to carry out some working activity. A brief description of control systems of single and multi-functional prosthetic devices is given here.
