Hand of Hope is an international award-winning, surface Electromyography (EMG) driven robotic hand rehabilitation system. Combining advances in robotics and neuroscience, it helps stroke patients regain hand mobility through motor relearning.
Features of Hand of Hope
1st sEMG-Driven Hand Robot Exoskeleton
Detects sEMG (surface Electromyography) signals from patient's muscles and assists to perform rehabilitation training
Hand and Arm Training
Patients can perform hand and arm training at different rehabilitation stages
Active and Passive Modes
Provides active and passive modes for training hand opening and closing
Interesting interactive games with adjustable difficulty levels to enhance patients' motivation
How does Hand of Hope works
The Hand of Hope works by patient’s self-initiated movement, recognized via surface EMG electrodes located on the affected forearm.
Patients see and understand their own capability throughout displayed feedback which help to increase motivation and engagement in the therapy.
Patient's effort is displayed real time on the screen.
1. Brain – Intention to move
2. Motor Neuron – Motor signal travels
3. EMG Sensors – Motor signal is captured
4. Hand of Hope – Captured signal drives robotic hand
5. Positive Feedback – Speed up motor recovery
Functions of Hand of Hope
Decreased muscular activity after stroke, spinal cord injury or hand/finger injury
Difficulty to self-initiate, control or maintain voluntary muscle movement
Impaired coordination of voluntary movement of the upper limb
Stroke patients can now join the “Hand of Hope Experience Programme” to bring the robotic device home for easy and convenient rehabilitation training.
Programme consists of two phases (Phase 1 and Phase 2), each phase lasts for two months
Programme fee includes usage of Hand of Hope, delivery, user training, maintenance service and technical support
Patients joining the programme will receive free progress assessment by our in-house doctors

4 years after stroke, I started to use the Hand of Hope to perform rehabilitation therapy for my left hand at home.
After several years of the rehabilitation, I was able to represent the Hong Kong Team to attend the National Games
for the Disabled in Sichuan Chengdu last year and was awarded the Men’s Table Tennis Singles Silver.

Hemorrhagic stroke due to brain congenital malformations of vascular burst
Eric fell down a hillside due to a mountain bike accident, causing intracranial
hemorrhage and affecting the motility of the right side of his body. He kept on
training his hand with the Hand of Hope every day for an hour. Three months later,
he could open his hand slowly and pick up objects.
Through intensive training, Eric has already been able to do a lot of things now such
as holding a cup of water to drink.
