The wrist brace in the video employs a function generator to map the constant stiffness of a standard torsion spring to the angle-dependent stiffness of the wrist of a stroke victim suffering from spasticity. Those suffering from this condition have a difficult time controlling the angle of their wrist, which tends to settle at the extremes of flexion.
