This paper present the design of a wrist rehabilitation device that is aimed at a patient diagnosed with Hereditary Angioedema (HAE), a condition that does not allow an effective recuperation from a wrist injury. First determine the conditions that the device must perform in order to determine the mechanism used to obtain the two movement type necessary, Flexion-Extension and Adduction-Abduction, to then adapt the different elements that allow to comply with the rest of the design conditions. Getting a simple device whose movement is generated by 2 servomotors that in which program angle, speed and time, conditions established by specialist to generate rehabilitation routines to the patient. The activity whit the device is performed in an autonomous way which helps the patient because the condition of HAE makes necessary that a constant rehabilitation be carried out daily.
