The HandyRehab is a mobile, powered exoskeleton glove for physical rehabilitation. Hand and finger re-mobilization requires various levels of assistance and repetition. This wearable robot can be used as a tool to assist patients to get back to full speed faster. The robotic glove can provide physical assistance or resistance during a training task. The goal is for the user to have their hand function restored and be able to perform tasks for daily living. The integrated sensors can be used to provide measurements and feedback for each user. The HandyRehab also takes advantage of integrated electromyographic biofeedback technology.
Mechanically, the HandyRehab is one of the lightest powered gloves for medical use at the start of 2021. It is untethered, but as of writing this entry, this model is not intended for home-use. The user interface allows for various training modes and immediate, on-screen feedback. The feedback can be used to better track the progress and needs of each patient during their recovery program.
The HandyRehab is being developed by Fourier Intelligence, which is no stranger to exoskeleton technology. The company has made the news on more than one occasion. You can see our coverage here.
