Abstract—The purpose of this research is to review upper limb exoskeleton for industrial and rehabilitation application from other researchers such as control system, mechanical design, load transmission methods, and control strategies. They mainly used the upper limb exoskeleton in the field of rehabilitation and power-assist. Electromyogram or EMG and Force sensor are used for measuring the user motion. Moreover, the load transmission methods have a lot of impact in term of speed and torque such as DC motor with gearbox, DC motor with driving wire, servo motor, and more. In this works, we study the various technique before design and develop the upper limb exoskeleton for supporting who is a disability of upper limb motion, to be more precise, low-cost, lightweight material, modern control algorithm, and capability upper limb motion.
