© 2017 IEEE. Many physical rehabilitation treatments aim to improve the ability to use upper limbs for the stroke patients. The robots have the power to help in treatment or mitigation as noted by the outcomes of recent research studies. However, the availability of these devices in clinical and rehabilitation settings is still limited. The paper discusses the technical design aspects and implementation of the wearable robotics assistive device. Firstly, it discusses design requirements and challenges of some of the existing rehabilitation and assistive devices. The second part of the paper focuses on our proposed 3D printing robot hand assistive devices as a case study included decisions considerations, design decisions, and aspects of the designs. In addition, outline the future recommendations for such the devices development.
