Stroke Rehabilitation through advanced robotic and neuroscience to restore movement of the hand.
Research has found that by actively engaging stroke patients in repetitive tasks, the brain is able to rewire neurological pathways to motor functions to relearn movement. The awareness and movement of hemi-paretic limbs can occur and functional recovery can continue even years after the brain injury.
The Hand of Hope system is a wearable, portable robotic device to help stroke survivors relearn how to move affected hand using their own muscle signals. The technology enables stroke survivors to self-initiate and control movement of the weakened muscles.
