Abstract—Lateral Epicondylitis and Medial Epicondylitis are occupational illnesses and they are frequently seen on people who are making excessive extension and flexion wrist movements more than 2 hours a day. Patients have to give a break in the middle of their working process because of the pain at the elbow location while performing extension and flexion wrist movements against resistive forces. To deal with this occupational disease, an active wrist orthosis device is designed first, and then, its successful operational functionality is shown in MATLAB/Simmechanics environment using a fuzzy logic controller.

Index Terms—active wrist orthosis, fuzzy logic controller, EMG Signal Processing
