Five million people in the U.S. are affected by a stroke every year. Finally, someone has developed a solution for stroke patients who need to learn how to reuse their hands. Neofect, Korean tech company, has created a smart rehabilitation glove that has been designed “to induce neural plasticity in the patient through specific and customized exercises.”
It’s pretty amazing to see the Rapael Smart Glove by Neofect help stroke patients regain movement “through repeat hand and arm movements in a virtual reality-type setting.”The Neofect glove has built- in sensors that are connected via an app.
Watch the above video. It really shows you the possibilities.
I hope no one reading this post ever needs the Rapael Smart Glove. However, it’s very comforting to know that such a device exists. This kind of rehabilitation can make all the difference in the world.
