It has been observed from many pieces of research and through applications that robotic movements using human interaction are considered dangerous, tiresome and require extraordinary precision and smooth control. Specifically, medical and healthcare applications have been the highest priority in recent years. The concept of rehabilitation using robotics was introduced during the 1980s with the motive of freeing therapists from repetitive work while treating an increasing elderly population requiring physiotherapy. Furthermore, the consistency of the robot’s operation and the volume of repetitions has increased. They can assist therapists in performing tedious tasks and let them concentrate on several patients simultaneously. Several types of rehabilitation robot devices have been produced in recent years with different modes of training and control strategies using various control algorithms. In this research paper, a comprehensive overview of rehabilitation in relation to robotics is presented. The main aim is to determine robust controlling optimization for the smooth control of robotic movement, as these movements require a lot of precision and accuracy. The analysis showed that M-PSO was found to be very effective and robust in finding the best optimal values, as the Modified PSO achieved the minimum root mean square value and a best fit of 98.7.
