Abstract

Parallel Mechanism based Rehabilitation Device for Neck Pain

Author(s): Arockia Selvakumar Arockia Doss

This research aims to design and develop a novel
parallel mechanism based cervical collar device to
help patients suffering from neck pain. Further this
research is focussed on elderly people to create movements
on the neck for various motions. The proposed
and developed parallel mechanism consists
of 3 RPS (Revolute – Prismatic – Spherical) joints.
The dimensional analysis is carried out based on
geometrical parameters of the parallel mechanism
based on logical approach. Based on the kinematic
equations the position and workspace analyses are
carried out. The mechanism is simulated in MATLAB
to validate the position and workspace analyses
results. Further preliminary experimental studies
are carried out based on various motions of neck.
Based on the studies, it is found that the developed
rehabilitation device can be used effectively to neck
