Abstract

© 2017 IEEE. Skills performance assessment in physical therapy is mainly evaluated by observational means from an expert. Recent advancements in technology enable the creation of smart instrumentation that can aid trainees and evaluators during the learning and evaluation process. Towards this goal, this paper presents the design and development of a sensorized glove for measuring movement and interaction forces of the hand during neck manipulation. The glove can measure forces with an error of less than 1 Newton and is capable of detecting motion and forces during manual rehabilitation maneuvers such as high-velocity, low amplitude neck manipulation.
