Abstract— In this paper we discuss a possibility to create an automated device which purpose is human jaw rehabilitation in every degree of freedom. A problem of jaw rehabilitation after variety of surgical procedures is shown and discussed. Also, a list of currently available rehabilitation devices and methods are shown. The conclusion is presentation of a concept of a novel device along with first functional model along with forthcoming works and test.
