Abstract: A device for monitoring the configuration of a distal physiological unit prises first position sensors for detecting quantities relating to the relative positions of a digit of an extremity of a limb and to the adduction-abduction of the digit. The device also comprises second position sensors for detecting quantities relating to the pronation-supination position of a distal portion of the limb, to the flexion-extension position of the wrist and to the adduction-abduction position of the wrist. The device comprises a glove structure bearing the fist sensors and an exoskeleton structure bearing the second sensors.
