It has titanium wires, which help to move those three fingers to perform tasks such as picking up a glass, holding a toothbrush or gripping a door knob. The glove is made of lather and looks a bit like an archery glove that covers just the thumb, index, and middle finger. The NeoMano has a controller with two settings: grip, which steadily curls your fingers around an object and release, which extends the fingers back to a resting position.

In the conventional sense, rehabilitation assists a person achieve greater control of their own health after injury, surgery, or illness. Since the Smart Glove was built for stroke patients, the company decided to create an entirely new glove specifically for people with spinal cord injuries. The NeoMano will seek funding through a Kickstarter campaign in the spring and is expected to be available later this 2018.
