True to its meaning of “support” or “to reinforce,” Agapay is a Filipino word that aims to provide rehabilitation with the aid of robotics.
Agapay is a robotic exoskeleton prototypes with a biofeedback mechanism for rehabilitation of post-stroke and injured patients by assisting motor movements in the shoulder, arm, and hand. The use of the technology will provide patients with high performance treatment option leading to a faster recovery rate.
The biomedical devices, which were 3D-printed, offers a cost effective solution to production and works by utilizing a real-time biofeedback system which records neuromuscular activity using surface electromyography (sEMG). The device is designed to be comfortable, safe, and userfriendly.
