The automatized rehabilitation area is currently in fast development together with rehabilitation robotics. After the device development is done, there is another important task to be accomplished - how to safety test device without patient injuries. This Article is describing one design in rehabilitation testing systems, based on industrial robot. The device is designated primarily for testing rehabilitation device with artificial muscle. The Construction based on artificial muscle is flexible, which enables to test reliability of the device before using it in practice. It is used for positioning articulated robot with 5 DOF Mitsubishi RV-2AJ. The robot is controlled from external C# application through serial port. Rehabilitation device is designed for upper arm rehabilitation and is connected to end of robot efector through coupling. We can reach any position in 3D robot workspace to define testing trajectory easy in draw area. Testing device can help check safety of rehabilitation device before testing with life patient.
