Over the last decades, upper limb robot-assisted rehabilitation after stroke has focused mainly on restoring arm function, yielding promising results that illustrate the potential of robots to complement traditional therapies and support stroke rehabilitation (Prange et al. (2006), Kwakkel et al. (2008)). However, arm function alone is not sufficient to perform most activities of daily living (ADL), such as eating/drinking, writing/typing and personal hygiene. In fact, hand function is fundamental to all these daily activities.

3, consists of two feedback loops, the Inner-Loop (IL) and the Outer-Loop (OL), each with its own controller. The IL controller works at the level of the individual joints. It consists of five independent PID-based joint position controllers, corresponding to each DOF in RUPERT. These controllers are basically PID controllers with some structural modifications, such as (1) Saturation limit for the integrator. (2) Saturation limit and a rate limit for the output from the controller. The saturation limits on the output restricts the control output between [0, 5], where 0 corresponds to 0psi (relative to the atmospheric pressure) and 5 corresponds to maximum pressure limit set for a given PMA.
