IpsiIHand

The IpsiHand aims to retrain moving a disabled arm just by thinking about it! The device comes in two parts: a cap to detect inert movement in the brain and a forearm exoskeleton to facilitate movement at the thumb and fingers.

Description

The IpsiHand solution is a post-stroke recovery aid. Its goal is to detect brain signals detected by electroencephalogram (EEG) through a headset. The system then opens and closes the wearable robot, executing the intended movement. This repeated therapy may improve motor functioning by repeatedly reinforcing and strengthening new connections and pathways to healthy parts of the brain.

The IpsiHand training aims to help patients experience benefits long after completing the treatment. Although the training is focused on the hand, the producer reports that training with it can benefit the entire arm.

 

The Neurolutions website includes more information on the IpsiHand, testimonials, and relevant resources related to living and recovering from a stroke.
