    Abstract

    This paper describes the remote training between Tokyo and Yamanashi with 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) parallel robot that is designed for the mouth-opening and -closing training. Remote training is useful for the patients who have difficulties to go to hospitals frequently. The authors have developed a master-slave training system using ISDN lines because ISDN is not difficult to come by in patient's home. Mouth-opening and -closing training robot WY-5R (Waseda Yamanashi-5 Refined) realized the remote training via two ISDN lines with 128 kbps. As a result of remote therapy using WY-5R, two patients' mouth-opening and -forward distances increased.
