Smart glove to improve stroke rehabilitation


An electronic glove that enables movement in the paralysed hand of stroke survivors - supporting their rehabilitation - has been invented by a team from the University of Southampton.

The glove has electrodes printed on the sleeve that make contact with the skin. The electrodes send electronic impulses to stimulate the nerves and muscles to produce an artificial movement.

It enables stroke survivors to achieve movement in their weak side, helping them to regain muscle strength and function.
