Abstract: Many people suffer from weakness in the upper or lower extremities, and there were no techniques to compensate for this weakness until not long ago, but with the progress and development of modern technologies, it became possible to provide these people with artificial external structures to help them recover even a small part of the energy of the weak limb called a robotic exoskeleton. In this paper, we studied the manufacturing of an upper exoskeleton which designed to help people with weak upper extremity muscles to rehabilitate and exercise these muscles and help them to carry out activities that they were not able to do, such as lifting weights and using the hand in simple daily activities. The final 3d model of the upper robotic exoskeleton shows a comfortable shape for the patient and static analysis of it illustrates his ability to handle high torque loads.
