In the past few years, we have covered plenty of powerful rehab robots here. Emovo Care’s Exoskeleton is also worth a look. It is a lightweight easy to attach hand exoskeleton for people unable to grasp objects following a stroke or accident. Emovo Grasp comes with:
artificial tendons resembling thin cables inserted into a sheath. They attach along the back of the hand using silicon rings placed on each finger. The motor and the remote control, which lets the user adjust the force being applied, are in small, separate cases.
The device applies light pressure on the index, then the middle finger to get them into contact with an object. The hand adjusts its grasp to irregular objects. The remote has another button to activate the opposite command. The above video shows this device in action.
