Nowadays the leading cause of disability is the stroke. The main reasons of cerebral vascular accident counted as Ischemia or Haemorrhage in the brain which ultimately results in stroke. It is widely agreed that natural recovery, as well as functional recovery of the body, takes place in the first month of the incident of the stroke victim. For a better improvement, some organization for neuroscience has the need to be put in order. Neural pathways which are damaged earlier can be reformed with neurons present inactivity and also can be engaged. The exoskeleton hand exerciser may be used for guidance or training device for patients following stroke to vigorously train their affected hand functions in normal condition. For different kind of disabilities, there are different actuation and control techniques. Exoskeleton hand exerciser is a prosthetics device for paralyzed patients who have lost their control over hand. It is a very useful thing by which they can easily do their works. Not only for the paralyzed people it is now very useful for military or forces. It can easily lift the heavy weighs of different weapons. This paper also explores the art of the exoskeleton exerciser for the palm.
